Lustables: City Postcarden

It’s the greeting card that keeps on sprouting.

Last week we lusted after stationary. This week…well, we’re creatures of habit. That, or we’re feeling nostalgic for a some throwback glamour – snail mail style. Like postcards and greeting cards. Remember them? The British design outfit Another Studio has given the retro “wish you were here” salutation an eco-meets-Chia-Pet makeover.

These sprouting greeting cards are small, easily shippable packets that literally pop up into a working garden. In about two weeks (with proper watering, of course), the garden will envelop the barren urban landscape with a rich forest of foliage. Score one for Mother Nature. Score two for sending your mom a birthday card.
