Our journey began in early 2018. What started out as a hobby and creative outlet on the side of daily Mum duties quickly turned into a full time job and successful business.
Founder and creative director, Tara's mission for Hello Petal is simple - to create beautiful pieces for the heart and home that don't cost the earth. Whilst on her journey to find quality, sustainable materials, Tara discovered the concept of plantable paper and knew she had to combine her love of flowers and handcraft it into greeting cards to create the perfect eco friendly gift.
Since then, Hello Petal have been leading the way in the industry with a not so ordinary card that keeps on giving.
We are incredibly proud to be the leading supplier of plantable cards with over 95 stockist across Australia & New Zealand. We have recently spread our roots to USA and Canada and invite you to experience our quality, sustainable products.
The seeds embedded within our paper are Australian sourced Swan River daisies (Brachyscome iberidifolia native to WA) and are visible throughout as tiny specks creating a beautiful handmade, textured feel. Due to the placement of the seeds and recycled nature of the paper, no two pieces are the same making each piece truly unique. Swan River daisies produce a beautiful white, blue purple or pink daisy-like flower.
Simply soak your card in water until completely wet, place on top of soil in a well-lit environment and ensure the paper does not dry out. Germination usually occurs within 7-21 days.
At Hello Petal we take sustainability seriously and pride ourselves on our sustainable aspects of business:
- handcrafted Australian made, plantable paper
- 100% home compostable (including all packaging)
- biodegradable 'sticky' tape used to secure your orders (made from regenerated wood pulp)
- packed and shipped in compostable mailers with carbon neutral couriers and of course, a whole lotta love!
we all have the ability to help save the planet. That's why we have pledged to donate 1% of all sales to Greening Australia. - an organisation dedicated to protecting and restoring Australia's vegetation. Together, with your support we can help overcome some of our biggest environmental challenges.
