Growing Paper produces handmade paper with a twist. Our paper is embedded with seeds that will grow into flowers or herbs once you have planted your used product, like our cards or a leaf from our calendars.
We make our handmade paper from post consumer waste paper and process it to make our lovely range of environmentally responsible products. Since the paper making process uses large amounts of water, we reuse our waste water for farming activities on the farm where we are situated. Our products are printed with waterbased ink.
Furthermore our products are made in such a way that any part of the product which isn’t plantable, is either biodegradable or recyclable.
GROWING PAPER WOULD LIKE TO THANK SAPPI FOR THE GENEROUS DONATION OF FELT. THIS IS A CRUCIAL ELEMENT IN OUR PAPERMAKING PROCESS AND THANKS TO THIS DONATION, WE CAN CONTINUE TO GROW.
WE WOULD ALSO LIKE TO THANK EVERY BUSINESS, SCHOOL AND FINANCIAL INSTITUTE THAT SO REGULARLY SUPPLY US WITH THEIR POST CONSUMER WASTE PAPER.
