Packaging you can grow
This is very clever – an organic skincare company has introduced enviromentally friendly packaging that you can not only recycle, but grow.
All of Pangea Organics product boxes are made using 100% post-consumer paper and are impregnated with seeds including sweet basil and amaranth. Use the product and plant the box! That’s what I call innovation!
Sweet basil is a popular herb used in cooking which contains a number of different essential oils. Some varieties of basil are used in Ayurvedic medicine.
Amaranth, also known as Chinese spinach, hinn choy or yin tsoi is a leafy vegetable and a good source of vitamin A, vitamin B6, vitamin C, riboflavin, folate and various trace elements.
The only possible problem I can see with this packaging is if it winds up in a particularly environmentally sensitive area where the plants it generates compete with native vegetation; but I state that not having much knowledge of either Basil or Amaranth.
Regardless, kudos to the company for this amazing idea. It definitely gets a Green Living Tips Nod :).
On a side note; the company states that none of their products contain petroleum based ingredients, sulfates, detergents, synthetic preservatives, artificial colors, frangrances or GMO’s.
