2016 has been a rocker of a year - and we have been busy making, teaching and planting over the last 6 months.
Here are a few things we have noticed on our travels in the plant world..
1.PLANT LADY IS THE NEW CAT LADY
And we are owning it.
Being a cat lady is so 2015.
Talk to your plants. They love it.
2. MAKE YOUR OWN FRESH AIR
Buildings all over the world are being transformed into inside jungles like the most amazing Double Bay Library.
According to this TED talk, Devil’s Ivy (one of our favs) turns so much C02 into 02 that you could actually live in a sealed bottle if it was filled with enough of it.
We aren’t advocating you live in a bottle with Devil’s Ivy but we are advocating having more plants in your living and working space so you can breath better air.
3. MY PLANT CALLED STEVE
More and more people are asking for us to name their plants. With living spaces getting smaller and smaller the plant is becoming the new pet.
People are connecting more with their plants and we are all for it.
If you come and visit us at the markets or buy online - we provide names for free so just ask. The most popular plant name so far is definitely Brian.
We also loved this idea so much that we created a special range of face pot plants.
HERE IS SOME STUFF WE HAVE BEEN DOING
We’ve been teaching kokedamas at the Botanic Gardens, terrariums at the Uniting Care Birthday party. We were lucky enough to also be a part of the Qantas World Environment Day where we were amongst other emerging brands like Tesla and we gave away a free tree with every purchase (well we donated money to One Billion Trees Organisation who plant them for us ;))
We have been working with an agency to provide the each of the 150 staff with a thank you cactus.
