Friday, April 22nd marks the 46th year of a movement for the planet. Earth Day was founded in 1970 as a way to channel human awareness toward emerging environmental issues. Now the largest civic observance in the world, more than 1 billion people now take participate in Earth Day activities each year.
In a world of heavy pollution, changing climates, and growing populations, the depletion of the earth’s renewable resources is a threat to humanity. The mission of Earth Day is to broaden and diversify the near half-century movement worldwide, by building a healthy, sustainable environment that addresses climate change and protects the earth for future generations.
Boulder-based Colorado company, Bloomin, is sowing the seeds of change by partnering with the Earth Day movement to promote universal awareness about the environmental activity. Bloomin uses all-natural seed paper to create beautifully unique wedding invitations, greeting cards, social stationery and promotions that can be planted to grow a beautiful garden. The team at Bloomin is an eco-minded community of people who embrace the belief of becoming a sustainable society through conservation and impact reduction.
After being planted, Bloomin stationery grows into wildflowers and other plants. The combination of biodegradable materials and integrated flower, herb, and vegetable seeds creates a product that naturally lends itself to an environmental initiative. Recipients of Bloomin products receive more than a generic piece of paper. They receive an invitation to take part in a worldwide movement to improve the planet and promote environmentally friendly behaviors.
Crafted from 100 percent post-industrial, recycled paper, Bloomin products are available in various shapes, sizes, and colors. Bloomin stationery is dyed with all-natural, vegetable-based pigments and water-based ink in a production facility that uses a 30kw solar power system, powered by the same sun that makes their products bloom.
Earth Day is observed for one day, but the environmental initiative is encouraged every day. Bloomin all-natural seed paper products encourage people to be the product of change all year round. 46 years of recognizing environmental issues and groundbreaking ideas has brought the mission of the Earth Day movement into focus among the global arena. A combination of education, public policy and companies like Bloomin, are the innovative components to a sustainable future.
