Confetti is a fun part of celebration and a popular convention of ceremonies. But unfortunately, it’s very dangerous and damaging to nature. The traditional confetti is made out of plastics or mylar. These materials can cause a lot of harm to the environment and wild animals. Now, however, eco-friendly confetti is getting a lot of traction, especially one brand called Saatgutkonfetti.
Philip Weyer together with some friends wanted to boost biodiversity in a fun and different way. It made them start Saatgutkonfetti which is a German start-up that has created biodegradable confetti, dyed with natural colours and containing a mix of 26 varieties of grass, herb and flower seeds making it eco-friendly and supporting of pollinators and other insects.
There are many benefits of adding flower, grass and herb seeds to the confetti. Both the flowers and grasses act as a home as well as a food source for various animals and insects. It helps preserve biodiversity in urban areas. And it gives citizens something beautiful to look at.
Saatguttkonfetti is a German start-up and therefore their confetti contains seeds native to Germany. If you’d like to use eco-friendly confetti with flower seeds make sure to find a brand whose confetti contains seeds native to where you live.
The world now has an option to celebrate using eco-friendly confetti. Hopefully, lots of people will hop on the trend. Like Shashi Mostafa (the host of the popular Instagram account Get.waste.ed highlighting topics concerning sustainability) said “It’s time to party sustainably!”
