How to recycle

How to recycle your case.  

Don’t trash it, smash it

Your unique product can return to nature but only if you remember to send it back to us rather than put it in the trash. If you do that, it will be treated like any other plastic and it won’t be a case with a purpose anymore. Your case cannot go to the recycle bin and it needs to compost in the right environment. Send it back to us to ensure it follows the right procedure and we collectively don’t add more waste to nature.  

Please email us at info@listening.store and we will send instructions to ship your case back to our studio for recycling. 

How to recycle the seed paper in your order's package. 

And now, how does your Seed Paper actually grow. When the Seed Paper is placed in soil, the paper will compost, and the seeds will germinate and eventually grows to the final seeds of your choice. 

Step 1: Preparation

You should fill the pot with potting soil by about 2/3. Think carefully whether you want to place it indoors or outdoors, because sunlight is needed but it doensn't need to get too much heat. Spring or summer would then be the most period to use Seed Paper.

Step 2: Planting

Now the real work begins! Place the plantable paper on the earth in the pot. If your paper is larger than the pot, it doesn't matter if it overlaps. Then sprinkle about half a centimetre of soil over the paper and press it gently. 

Step 3: Watering

When the paper is planted in the pot, water the paper until it is well moist but does not drown. Keep the paper moist for the first 10 days so that the seeds germinate. After all, they first must separate themselves well from the paper and the paper must largely perish before they sprout.

Step 4: Let it grow

As soon as the first seeds germinate, you keep the paper moist but a little less than before, because the sprouts can drown quickly from this moment on. If the plants then become a little firmer, water them occasionally, just what they need to grow. 

 

The seeds don't grow... What now? 

Although we do everything, we can to keep the conditions for the Seed Paper as optimal as possible, it can happen that the seeds do not unexpectedly germinate. They remain living goods that you must have to handle with care. Possible causes could therefore be that the earth has not been kept sufficiently wet until it germinates, or that the earth is not rich in nutrients.

Furthermore, planting in winter or early spring is never recommended: for example, if you have received a plantable Christmas card from, it is best to wait until the spring or summer period. If you treat the Seed Paper with love and care, it can't go wrong.
