Cost-Effective, Eco-friendly & Easy Seed Paper Packaging Ideas

In a world where the demand for sustainability is only growing, companies are having to switch to more sustainable packaging. If you find yourself unsure how to achieve a complete sustainability overhaul with a modest budget, start where you can. Maybe it’s small changes like hang tags or bigger ones like boxes. Intention and effort are what counts. Luckily, Botanical PaperWorks has a lot of seed paper packaging ideas that will give you flexibility.

Seed paper is a popular sustainable packaging option because it’s made from 100% recycled paper waste and grows pollinator-supporting wildflowers, veggies, or herbs.

Brands that use seed paper communicate their eco values, stand out from competitors, and connect with loyal customers excited to plant and take photos of what grows. The social media tags alone create a buzz around your brand!

Here are some cost-effective seed paper packaging ideas that will leave a lasting positive impression:

1. Belly bands and sleeves
