10 Cool Products That You Can Use Now, Plant After


Have your sweets and plant them, too

Being mindful of the environment and treating yourself to pretty things don't have to be mutually exclusive. In celebration of tomorrow's Earth Day, we've rounded up 10 products that are kind to both you and the planet—and that have serious longevity. Rather than leaving creative recycling up to the consumer, the below brands have produced products and packaging that can be planted in your garden (or, you know, the window planter you have in your four story walk-up) to fill your living space with gorgeous blooms for the warmer months.

While eco-friendly products have a bad rep for being drenched in tacky shades of green or boasting clip art tree logos (cringe!), these goodies shatter the mold. Wrap up your bestie's birthday gift in plantable wrapping paper, and let the gift keep on giving when her wildflowers bloom later on. Better yet, why not plant the flowers while you party with seeded confetti hearts? Even environmentally aware witches can dig into this stash to find their new source for moon phase calendars and herb code-adorned note cards. 

This Earth Day, lighting a candle and hopping in the bath with handmade soap and a glass of wine can totally be an eco-conscious effort. Flip through the gallery below to find out how.

As if doughnuts weren't already Instagram-worthy, these guys grow wildflowers. All the aesthetic and none of the carbs, what could be better? Just try not to be too tempted to take a bite, as these sweets aren't edible. If doughnuts aren't your thing, Paper Sprouts has plenty of other cute plantable options, including seeded flower gardening sets and succulent arrangements.

Paper Sprouts, Wildflower Seed Bomb Donuts, $24, available at Paper Sprouts.
