With Christmas rapidly approaching, we hurry to buy gifts and gift cards. Often, we fret about the holiday card just as much as we fret about the gift itself. Will the person like it? Is it special enough? These questions are always on our mind.
In order to come up with something new and innovative for Christmas, Niko Niko created the plantable holiday cards. These cards are made from handmade paper embedded with wildflower seeds. Cheery Christmas images adorn the holiday card. Once the message is read, the receiver can plant the wildflower seeds either indoor or outdoors. They need only water and a handful of soil.
It is not the first such project designed by Niko Niko. For weddings, they created biodegradable confetti. Now they wish to make their holiday cards bloom by using various wildflower seeds of different colors.
On their website, you can find cards for many occasions. If you need one for birthdays, births or weddings, you can find them at just over $5. Both the card and the envelope are made of recyclable paper. Planting instructions are printed on the back of every card for those who need gardening advice.
Niko Niko means “say cheese” in Japanese as the company tries to bring a smile on their customers’ faces. Knowing very well that hundreds of thousands of trees are cut down in each country, every year, to create holiday cards, Niko Niko’s project comes as a way to bring balance in the environment. The company. run by Sofie Los and Saskia Clarijs, has a mission to create products that are both funny and environmental friendly.
The plantable holiday cards are a gift that keeps on giving. Its owners receive both a funny present and a drop of color in their lives. Would you buy a plantable holiday card for your loved ones?
