Seeding Cards

Playful, Personal, Plantable

Who They Are

Created by two best friends on a mission to make less waste, Seeding Cards is taking the greeting card industry by storm. Founders Brittney La Gesse and Maranda Steinmetz-Robey. teamed up to combine their two passions of low-waste lifestyles and art, and the idea of seeded greeting cards grew to fruition.

La Gesse is no stranger to low-waste living. She recently founded the Refill Revolution, a bulk and zero waste store in EarthHero’s hometown of Boulder, Colorado. Everything sold is either bulk, plastic free, reusable, or biodegradable–and her side venture could be no different.

The two believe that plantable greeting cards are a perfect gift, and we agree! They’re playful, personal, and won’t leave unnecessary waste behind. What could be better?

Why We Like Them

Seeding Cards puts sustainability first with every step used to create their unique, plantable cards. From the paper used, to the seeds they source, you can feel comfortable gifting these to any eco-guru in your life.

Each card is printed on 100% post consumer recycled paper, which isn’t dyed or bleached. The inks used to print the hand-painted design are soy-based, and all production is done in Boulder, Colorado in a 30KW solar powered facility. Even better, each set of cards is packaged and shipped without plastic packaging!

If you’re worried about the seeds, they’ve thought of that too. Each seed blend used is non-GMO, and can be planted in pots if you’re worried about introducing new plant species to your local habitat.

This product contains material that can break down into soil in either a backyard or industrial composting system. These products are declared compostable by the manufacturer, but may not third-party certified. Contact your local waste-hauler or composting facility to determine where these materials may be accepted.

Some or all of the energy used to make this product is produced via renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, or hydropower.

This product is made without the use of Genetically Modified Organisms. The process of using GMO’s involves manipulating the DNA of plants, animals, and other organisms to produce benefits such as an ability to tolerate herbicides or produce their own pesticides. GMO’s have been deemed as unsafe by many developed nations.

Recycled paper can contain both pre- and post-consumer recycled content. Once paper is sent to a recycling facility, it’s washed to remove any inks and converted to a watery slush called “slurry.” This slurry is spread and rolled to create different types of paper. This process keeps paper out of the landfill, prevents trees from being cut down, and saves the energy and resources needed to create virgin paper products.

This product was made in the United States. Buying locally made items helps to reduce harmful emissions that result from transportation during and after the production process. Purchasing products made in the United States also ensures that the items are produced in ways that meet strict safety and labor standards.

Companies can adopt multiple practices to print clothing, books, and catalogs in a more environmentally safe way. Low impact inks can include vegetable, soy, or water based alternatives, and generally do not contain harmful toxins like heavy metals or phthalates.
