Why are the bees dying?

In 2006, Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) wiped out one-third of all honeybees in the U.S.

Colony Collapes occurs when honey bees collect and bring home toxic pollen from pesticide-covered crops.

Of the 250 bumblebee species found throughout the world, about one-quarter are thought to be facing the risk of extinction.

Tis the season to give thanks and celebrate the holiday season!

pn1 tkg e

Sending Thanksgiving thank you cards to clients is a great marketing tool that also makes you feel good! The act of sending a personalized card shows your clients that you care about them and appreciate their continued business. It also creates an opportunity to start a conversation about holiday orders.

With over 1.5 billion greeting cards sold during the holiday season every year it is clear that holiday cards are a big money maker. However, it is also clear that standard holiday cards create tons of waste. Glossy coatings and foil render greeting cards unrecycleable, meaning that those types of cards will go straight to the landfill. So why not choose eco-friendly paper instead? Stand out with Bloomin 100% recycled, 100% plantable seed paper.

This video is a brief outline of the many products and processes that Bloomin developed 22 years ago. With hundreds of thousands of seed paper products sold around the globe each year, Bloomin has been recognized as the originator and true authority on all things seed paper.

Bloomin still makes paper the old fashioned way, one sheet at a time, in the Shadows of the University of Colorado. We are proud of our close ties to the community and appreciate CU taking the time to recognize our efforts to operate at the forefront of environmental sustainability. Go Buffs!

Our new plantable seed coins are all the rage this year. They have won 3 out of the 5 Product Showcases at the 2014 ASI shows.They’re eco-friendly, customizable, and extremely unique promotions. 

They are also so realistic that bystanders will actually pick them up right off the ground in excitement! Made from double-thick seed paper, they are the same size and shape as real U.S. minted coins. Letter-pressing both sides gives the coins a textured and weighty feel to them. Each coin will grow something different for your garden. If you want wildflowers this year, then only plant the pennies. To add to your veggie garden, plant the dimes for carrots & turnips or plant the quarters for a mix of salad greens. Create your own herb garden from the nickels which include a mix of basil, thyme,parsley, chive and oregano seeds.Check them out HERE
