Recycled Ideas is a female-led, mission-driven, independent business based in Walla Walla, WA, that manufactures paper with seeds embedded in it using traditional, handmade, sustainable techniques. For most of their paper, they use flower seeds — a carefully researched and thoughtfully chosen mix that includes both annuals and perennials including: Zinnia, cosmos, snapdragons, red and pink poppies, shasta daisies, black-eyed susans, blue cornflowers, marigolds, calendula, dianthus / Sweet Williams, and godetia.
Inland Northwest Trading Co. is excited to partner with Recycled Ideas, one of the premier producers of seed-embedded paper in the world, and the leader in this specialty paper market. We love that Recycled Ideas uses non-GMO flower seeds that do not contain neonicotinoids (insecticides) that can be harmful to bees. The seeds they use are only all native or well-established in North America, Europe, and urban areas around the world, preventing non-native or generic wildflowers from doing damage once they spread beyond where they are planted.
