Description

Plantable Paper Gorillas ~ Zoo Wedding ~ Party Favor
** Plant them, they grow! **

These plantable paper gorillas contain a mix of perennial and annual garden flower seeds embedded right in the paper — you can grow them! These gorillas make wonderful favors for zoo weddings, birthday parties, baby showers that guests can take home to plant and grow.

If you'd like gorillas made in a different color scheme, we can do that. Just let me know what colors you'd like. Photos show only a few of the many, many color choices and options. See below for details.

Because we have a very large place in our hearts for gorillas, we have chosen to donate 100% of the proceeds from the sale of all gorillas through etsy to the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund, a conservation organization created after the death of American primatologist Dian Fossey, who bravely embarked on the world's first long term study of the rare and endangered mountain gorilla. Her legacy continues today in the remote Virunga Mountains of Rwanda, as the organization has grown to support park ranger training, anti-poaching patrols, snare removal, and continued research and education on mountain gorillas. Please see below for more information on this wonderful organization that we are proud to support.

Orders for the 'gift box kit' include gift boxes (3x3 inch), biodegradable plantable pots (2 inch), gorillas, mini hearts to tie onto them, We support DFGF cards, planting instruction cards, tissue and ribbon. If you would like soil pellets to include with the gift box kit, please let us know at checkout. All gift box sets are DIY assembly: fold boxes into shape, insert contents and tie the pre-cut ribbons around them.

SIZE: 3 inches tall, about 3 inches wide.
Set of 25 gorillas. Choose DIY gorillas or 'tied' gorillas.

DIY gorillas:
With the DIY gorillas, hearts are loose in a packet, ready to be tied on. You'll need to let me know if you need a separate set of planting instructions for each gorilla. I will send you a pdf of several cards to a sheet so you can print out as many cards as you need.

Tied gorillas:
Gorillas that are 'tied' arrive with the hearts already strung on. Color-printed individual instruction cards are also included for every gorilla. The cards have the We Support DFGF on the front and planting instructions on the back.

............GORILLA COLORS..............
White, cream, beige, tan, light brown/milk chocolate, chocolate/dark brown, pale yellow, sunshine yellow, golden yellow, dark/mustard yellow, butterscotch, light baby blue, medium/cornflower blue, faded navy/dark blue, slate blue/blue gray, light baby pink, pink, dark/hot pink, rose, merlot/burgundy, red, peach, salmon/orange, burnt orange, chartreuse, kiwi, mint green, dark green, sage, olive, seafoam green, aqua, turquoise, teal, light lavender/lilac, purple, light gray, and charcoal gray. Other colors are available by request, too. If no specific color is requested, we usually make the gorillas brown or black or a combo of those two colors.

............ PLANTING SEEDS ............
We make all of our seed paper on a made-to-order basis to ensure freshness and top quality. The seeds included in the paper are a mix of annuals and perennials that include red and pink poppies, shasta daisies, snapdragons, pink cosmos, zinnia, cornflowers, dianthus, coreopsis, marigolds, columbine, and other desirable flower seeds as available. Planting instructions are included. You'll need to let us know if you need a separate set of planting instructions for each favor. We can email you a PDF of several to a sheet so you can print out as many instruction cards as you need.

To grow the gorillas:
Plant as you would other seeds. Keep the paper dry and out of direct sunlight until you're ready to plant it. When the climate is right, plant 1/4" under fertile soil and keep damp. The gorillas can be started indoors in a small pot at any time of year, with added warmth. Many of the seeds prefer temps of 70ºF to sprout. Move outside in the spring after the threat of frost has passed to promote continued growth. Or, save them until the warmth of spring and plant then. For best results, plant gorillas when the climate is right for your area and keep the area free of insects and birds. Keep continuously damp to promote germination. Monitor and care for them as needed.

....... DIAN FOSSEY GORILLA FUND ........
The Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund was created in the wake of the death of American primatologist Dian Fossey, who bravely embarked on the world's first long term study of the rare and endangered mountain gorillas until her her unsolved murder. Working in the remote mountains of Rwanda, she set about identifying gorilla social structure, nutrition, and habitat needs. She spent a considerable amount if time destroying poacher's snares to prevent gorilla hands and feet being caught in them. Her work continues today as the organization has grown to cover the cost of park ranger training, anti-poaching patrols, snare removal, and continued research on the mountain gorillas. I am very proud to announce that our handmade plantable gorillas were included in the organization's fundraising packages for Mother's Day. My company, Recycled Ideas, donates 100% of the cost for this, including all sales of gorillas through Etsy. It is my hope that including plantables in the DGFG material will encourage people to plant, grow, and take ownership of their own local habitat for the betterment of all. Please consider adopting a mama and baby gorilla through DFGF this year for Mother's Day. Your investment in their future betters our fragile planet. http://gorillafund.org/page.aspx?pid=568

Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
We accept payment via Paypal and credit card. You will know your order has been accepted when you see a graphic of an empty gift box that says your order is complete.

Returns & exchanges

Due to the custom-made and perishable nature of our product, we cannot accept returns on most items and cannot accept returns of items made in specific colors or seeds. Make your purchases carefully. If you require very specific colors, please send us a sample we can match to. Or, purchase a sample through our site: www.recycledideasfavors.com

Shipping policies

Most US orders ship via USPS First Class or parcel - shipping upgrades to Priority and Express are available for most items.

If you have a time sensitive order, such as a pet sympathy card or funeral order, we strongly recommend upgrading to Priority shipping or Express shipping. It is faster and more predictable than First Class and parcel shipping. You are always welcome to upgrade to one of those faster shipping options at checkout. A rush order can almost always be accommodated, but please contact us first to make sure it is possible in the time frame needed.

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS:
Please note, VAT/duties/customs charges are NOT included in your purchase price. Your purchase may still incur customs charges, levied by your government and payable to them, not to us. We do not charge it. Items returned for failure to pay VAT are not eligible for refund. It is your responsibility to pay the appropriate tax, where applicable, to your government taxing authority.

WA and PA state customers will be charged sales tax.

Additional policies

How long will the seeded paper last?
- Our plantable paper has a shelf life of 12-18+ months and much longer when stored properly away from heat, humidity, and light. To preserve the paper, keep it dry and out of direct sunlight.

What type of seeds do you use?
- Our seeds are a premium garden flower of both annuals and perennials: Poppies, shasta daisies, calendula, snapdragons, cosmos, zinnia, cornflowers, dianthus/Sweet Williams, columbine, marigolds, lupine, and other garden flower seeds as available. All are relatively easy to sprout from seed and are native to North America. For orders outside the US, we use a slightly different mix of seeds that is appropriate to the area. We do not recommend wildflowers because these are not suitable to plant in all areas and can be too 'weedy' and spread beyond where they are wanted.

Do you create custom items?
- Yes! We have a set up charge for custom pieces. This cost depends on the type of work needed and is generally $40-250. This is in addition to the cost of the item.
