Plant Your Newspaper

You can now read and plant a newspaper. The Mainichi newspaper can be recycled in a unique way. After reading up on current events bury the paper in moist soil and in a few weeks you have plants and flowers. The pages of this Japanese newspaper contain seeds. The ink is made of vegetables that act as fertilizer. This way the paper made from plants grows back into them. What an eco friendly way to create awareness!

This Green Newspaper was published on Green Day and reached more than 4.6 million people and spread all over Japan.
