Future Oxygen Review and Giveaway

7:01 AM


***GIVEAWAY CLOSED***

When it comes to mail, I think a personally written letter, note or card is much more personal than an email. No offense to the person who invented email, but snail mail is a lost art these days that ought to be brought back. I love to write. I had numerous penpals when I was a young person and still keep in touch with a few today.

I have some really amazing greeting cards to show to you today and the company that makes them is also truly amazing.
Future Oxygen is a company that offers products that are based upon the improvement of the environment. All of Future Oxygen's products can be planted (yes, I said planted) after use and then grow into beautiful plants, flowers, grasses or trees. Thus, the name "Future Oxygen". Using things now, then putting them into the earth to "create" more oxygen!
Here is a little more about Future Oxygen and some of the goals that they have:

"Two people started this company believing we could change how you think about cards and the environment. In 2009 we added our ecowear line. Our desire is to create eco-friendly works of art. Each premium product is designed to be 100% biodegradable. Every piece is unique because it supplies the world with future oxygen, having the ability to grow flowers grasses or trees. Every day we strive for quality and to minimize our effect on the environment in our processes and raw material choices. If you want to help the planet, you are ready for our company.
All FO2 products are 100% biodegradable, including the packaging and are available for gifts, personal use, awareness, school/club fundraisers and as promotional items. A portion of our proceeds are donated through GreaterGood.org to support breast cancer awareness, animal rescue and support of the environment."
So, what kind of products are available from Future Oxygen? Well, they have plantable wedding invitations, greeting cards, pendants, boxed stationary and keychains. Sooooo, your next question is probably how do you PLANT a PENDANT??? Here's your answer:

Cut off any metal piece.(If you return the metal piece to Future Oxygen, they will reuse it in a future piece and send you a coupon for your next purchase!) Soak the pendant and cord in water overnight. Gently pour the dissolved mixture on the ground or in a dirt-filled pot. Lightly cover with 1/4 inch of loose soil. Keep evenly moist until seedlings are well established. Germination time is 1 - 4 weeks.

And here is how you "Plant" the stationary/cards/invitations...
Soak each card in water for 24 hours. Tear up the card and plant the pieces under 1/4 inch of loose well drained soil. Keep evenly moist until seedlings are well established. Germination time is 1 - 4 weeks.
I was sent the Wheat Boxed Thank You Stationary set for review and have to tell you that these cards are GORGEOUS. They are blank on the outside and simply say "Thank You" on the inside. Imbedded in each card are seeds for wildflowers. Each card is 100% biodegradeable, post-consumer cover stock. I love how they look so rustic, yet classy at the same time. Truly lovely cards! The price is a little steep for my taste...a box of 5 cards is $24.95 and a box of 12 cards is $47.95. Not really practical for my budget. However, these cards are currently sold out on the website so if you love this type of thing, price is not an issue! :)
The pendants are really cute as well. There are many different ones to choose from. My favorites are the Mother/Child and the Three Flowers pendants. Both of these are filled with wildflower seeds and both of them support breast cancer research! Very good causes.
So, in my opinion...Future Oxygen is a company that offers truly unique and amazing products! I definitely would endorse them to anyone...especially for that amazingly difficult-to-by-for person on your Christmas list!!!
