The British always seem to come up with creative green ideas. First they create an Eco-Car that can travel on a Coca Cola can of fuel, and then they design recycled shoes made from London’s underground train and bus seats. Now they’ve come up with something that will put a smile on your face and a little green on your thumbs: a plantable pop-up garden card!

How could you pass up something with a description like this? - “PostCarden was created to be more playful, curious and interactive. It encourages you to bond, live and grow the greeting on a day by day basis. Over time the card reacts to you and your environment evolving in beauty and charm.” The cards are produced by A Studio for Design and come in 3 different designs:

Botanical

Allotment

City

All you have to do is sprinkle the cress seeds in the card, cover them with a little water and then they germinate in a few days! They’ll live up to 2 weeks as long as you keep them watered and in the sun.

Here’s a quick video of how the cards work:

This is what I call a dynamic duo: plants and cards rolled together in one!
