Have your family make a decision to take just one action to make our planet greener in honor of Earth Day, on April 22. A great idea from the Triumph Plant Company is to swap out your usual wrapping paper for Flowering Gift Wrap. Triumph’s recycled paper can go from the party and into the flower pot, because it’s embedded with fresh wildflower seeds that attract butterflies!
You’ll be scaling back your carbon footprint while you and your family make your neighborhood more hospitable for lovely pollinators. The kit includes four large sheets (24-inches by 36-inches) of wrapping paper in pale aqua, lavender, and beige which can be used to wrap shirt boxes or to line gift bags. It also includes six gift cards with planting directions printed on their backs.
The papers contain a mix of seeds for candytuft annual, Siberian wallflower, California poppy, and lupine perennial flowers. The wildflower paper can be planted anywhere — making it truly a gift that keeps on giving.
