Save the Earth and Add Some Beauty with Bloomin Published on March 08, 2016 Paper bowls. Paper cups. Paper planes. Paper towels. Newspapers. Toilet paper. Writing paper. Paper, paper, paper. It’s everywhere, it’s endless, and it’s filling up landfills all over the earth. 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 are we expected to stop sending greeting cards, go without beautiful wedding invitations, or tell businesses they can’t send sale notifications or obtain business cards? Certainly not, thanks to Bloomin. Bloomin has completely changed the paper-product industry, creating products from 100% post-industrial, recycled paper that is colored with entirely-natural, vegetable-based pigments. But that’s not the greatest part – you can literally plant their complete collection of products. Plant a card? Absolutely! Plant a bookmark? Of course! Plant confetti? Yes! All of Bloomin’s all-natural seed paper can really be planted and Bloomin’s seed paper has the top germination rate in the trade. But they don’t stop at recycling paper to send you plantable products to create a garden or just add a touch of beauty; they also take the eco-friendly game up a notch. All of their paper is printed with water and soy based inks and the package is largely corn-based. It doesn't stop there - their production facilities are sustainable, too. They installed a 30 kW solar power system so they can really say they are powered by the same sun that makes their products grow.
