  Recycled Ideas

Recycled Ideas is a wife and husband team of papermakers who really love gorillas.
We make the paper by hand in a labor-intensive process invented in China thousands of years ago. We've been making paper for 17 years, adding seeds to the pulp so that the paper can be planted to grow. We prefer native plants and garden flowers that do not spread wild and take over places they are not welcome. We love to garden, to grow, and to create — it is the heart and soul of what we do.
Our plantable paper is used in some of the most important events in people's lives — weddings, baby showers, birthdays, and memorials. Proceeds from purchases through our etsy site help us to make charitable contributions every year to the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund, and we donate 100% of the proceeds of all plantable gorilla sales to the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund.
