The Biodegradable Placenta Planting Pack
The Capceco Biodegradable Placenta Planting Pack is the no mess, no fuss way to keep and plant your placenta. Packed at the birth by your maternity carer, your placenta's biodegradable capsule goes straight from the freezer to the ground. We also include the unique illustrated "Your Tree" keepsake book and Copper tree tag to permanently record your child's name and details when you plant your child's tree.
The pack includes:
Corn Starch Bags
100% Recycled Cardboard Capsule
Convenient Carry Bag
"Your Tree" Child's Keepsake Record Book
Includes: Copper Tree Tag
This copper tree tag is the perfect way to permanently record your child's name and birth date on their tree.
Simply write their details on the tag by placing it on a semi soft surface like a newspaper. This will permanently indent their name into the tag which oxidise to a green brown patina over time.
Be sure to place the tag on a branch and not the trunk.
Capceco Biodegradable Placenta Pack

Kind words from Debbie Ross, Midwife.
"I love how the Birth to Earth - Placenta Planting Pack turns a practice that could make someone squeamish into a lovely celebration of your child’s birth and also honours the amazing job the Placenta has done."
The current option offered to you by hospitals are all plastic which are not only toxic to our planet but require you to defrost and unpack the placenta before you can plant it.
Current Placenta Storage Option
Most birthing facilities will pack your placenta into a plastic bag or a plastic container. This needs to be defrosted for over 24 hours to thaw enough for the placenta to be removed for planting. Never a nice job – especially for a squeemish male!
