Foxglove Papers isn't just a business; it represents a sustainable journey and a passion for revolutionizing the greeting card sector. The story originates from a team of young entrepreneurs at Oldham Hulme Grammar School, driven by a shared commitment to environmental consciousness. Their mission is rooted in sustainability, offering an innovative approach to the greeting card industry.

Founded with the vision of transforming traditional paper into a medium of growth and beauty, Foxglove Papers specializes in eco-friendly, seeded paper products. From greeting cards to wedding invitations and promotional items, each creation is created with post-consumer recycled waste and embedded with wildflower seeds. The result? A product that not only delivers a heartfelt message but also blossoms into vibrant wildflowers when planted, attracting and supporting essential pollinators like bees, butterflies, and various beneficial insects. This simple act not only adds natural beauty but also contributes to the preservation of these vital species, fostering a healthier ecosystem. Moreover, by using materials made from post-consumer waste, this initiative actively reduces environmental impact and promotes a more sustainable approach, thus benefiting the planet as a whole.

The paper they use for the seeded paper greeting cards is made from 100 % Post Consumer waste recycled paper, fibres of cotton and a mix of wildflower seeds, which includes Corn Poppy, Catchfly, English Daisy, Sweet Alyssum, Spurred Snapdragon, Black-Eyed Susan.

The seed card material possesses exceptional qualities. It's not just fully biodegradable, ensuring a clean breakdown without leaving any harmful residues behind. What's even more remarkable is that it's infused with wildflower seeds. Once you've finished using the card and plant it with a little nurturing, it has the potential to blossom into a stunning array of wildflowers.
