How to Plant Your Security Tags

Your One Wear Freedom Security Tags are a biodegradable eco-paper that is made with post-consumer materials (no trees harmed for this paper!) + embedded with wildflower seeds. When the paper is planted in a pot of soil, the seeds grow and the paper composts away. All that is left behind is flowers + no waste!!
See the Steps below to plant your very own lil Bumblebee Haven using the removed Security Tags!

SUPPLY LIST

  • a pot for planting
  • some good potting soil
  • plantable security tag
  • water
  • a sunny corner

STEP 1 - PREPARE YOUR POT

Fill your pot 2/3 full with good potting soil. Tamp down the soil + add more if necessary. You want the pot to be firmly full, but not packed.

The tags can be planted indoors or outside at any time of year(ish), so you get to choose according to the temperature + conditions at the time of planting (we don't recommend planting outside if it's blizzarding or desert-hot!).

STEP 2 - PLANT THE PAPER

Take your plantable tags + cover the soil in the prepared pot with the cut up paper tags. It's okay if the paper overlaps. Spread a 1/8 inch layer of soil over the plantable security tag pieces + tamp down gently.

STEP 3 - WATER DURING GERMINATION

After planting the paper in your pot, give it a good soak. You want the paper and the soil to be nicely damp but not swimming in water. During the first 10 days, keep the paper moist at all times. The water is necessary for germination.

STEP 4 - CARE AFTER GERMINATION

Once sprouts appear, continue to keep the paper moist but be careful not to overwater. Once sturdy plants appear, water as needed.

STEP 5 - ENJOY THE FLOWERS

Once the flowers start to blossom, enjoy them in the pot or cut them and place in a decorative vase + let the bees find a new safe haven with YOU!
