I mentioned Pangea before – here and here. I like their products a lot, although I find that they can be a little strong for my nose. Today I opened a package and just as I was about to throw the recycled cardboard container away I stopped to read about the material:
The molded fiber box is the first of its kind. It was manufactured with zero waste and is created from 100% post-consumer newsprint without glues or dies. Soak the box for 1 minute and plant it about 1″ deep in soil. Up should spring medicinal herbs found in our products.
Excellent! Naturally I will plant the box.
Iâ€™ve bought the bar soaps before, but guess I did not read the fine print :) I kept the boxes, thinking that they might come in handy one dayâ€¦now Iâ€™m going to plant them!
That is awesome! Let us know how the plants turn out.
I just got in from the garden marvelling at all the volunteer plants popping up. I went to wash my hands with a bar of Pangea soap from a friend who was kind enough to share his TED bounty with me. And then I read your post. Three great gifts. I’m now going through the recycling bin to fetch that box…
