Say ‘yes!’ to a sustainable wedding with these eco-friendly seed paper wedding cards by Plantables
Indian weddings have eternally been high on joy and grandeur. But as the world changes, the impact of weddings on the environment has come under the spotlight, and rightly so. Wedding hopefuls often struggle when it comes to making sustainable choices for their big day.
However, we’ve got you covered when it comes to wedding cards!
Plantables, a company created by sustainability enthusiasts Garima Capoor and Sumat Nanda craft eco-friendly products perfect for the emerging era of green weddings. Elegantly handmade and crafted out of seed paper, their wedding cards not only celebrate your love but also give greenery a chance to thrive on the planet. Sharing why they created Plantables and what drives them, Garima Capoor Nanda tells us, “As green nerds and sustainability enthusiasts we want to send out tokens of love & life in the form of eco-friendly plantable products that can be sown in soil. Once they’re nurtured, they will sprout forth vibrant greens! Plantables came into being when we were looking for beautiful and pocket-friendly seed paper wedding cards for our own wedding a few years back, and since we were unable to source the same, we decided to make them ourselves. Plantable Seed Paper, apart from being biodegradable, is 100% wood-free and made up of waste cotton scraps making it extremely environment-friendly.”
