Save the Earth and Add Some Beauty with Bloomin Published on March 08, 2016 Paper dishes. Paper cups. Paper planes. Paper napkins. Newspapers. Toilet paper. Sketching paper. Paper, paper, paper. It’s all around, it’s constant, and it’s flooding landfills all over the world. According to the EPA, 34 million tons of paper was thrown away in 2008 and paper makes up 13% of solid waste in the US alone. But do they think we are going to stop sending greeting cards, go without elaborate wedding invitations, or tell businesses they can’t send coupons or obtain business cards? Absolutely not, thanks to Bloomin. Bloomin has turned the paper-product industry upside down, creating products from 100% post-industrial, recycled paper that is stained with all-natural, vegetable-based pigments. But that’s not the greatest part – you can actually plant their entire line of products. Plant a holiday greeting? Absolutely! Plant a wineglass charm? Of course! Plant party favors? Yes! All of Bloomin’s 100%-natural seed paper can actually be planted and Bloomin’s seed paper has the top germination rate in the market. But they don’t stop at recycling paper to send you paper products you can plant to create a garden or just add some beauty; they also take the earth-friendly game up a notch. All of their paper is printed with water and soy based inks and the packaging is mainly corn-based. It doesn't stop there - their production facilities are sustainable, too. They installed a 30 kW solar power system so they can truly say they are powered by the same sun that makes their seed paper grow.

The next time you start to order something made out of paper, remember you can deliver a more unique product and give the world a little TLC with Bloomin.
