What are your environmental / social initiatives?

Bringing the outdoors in; putting gardens in peoples hands; creating environmental stewards and raising mindfulness to the natural environment.

 

When and why did you start your business?

One year ago, so that people could feel connected to the land.

 

What does sustainability mean to you?

Making each decision with regard to how it impacts the whole. Giving back to the land more than one receives.

 

What is one thing readers can do to lighten their footprint?

Care for and increase your plant collection! Not only does this reduce your carbon footprint, but changes the way you interact and think about the health of plants in general.
