Plant Rescue Boxes:
"Plants shouldn’t end up in the bin just because they no longer look ‘perfect’. They deserve our love and care, for without them none of us would exist. All too often houseplants are treated as disposable items, like a wilted bunch of flowers but they are alive and do so much for us, the least we can do is try our best to help them recover"
Introducing the Plant Rescue Box in collaboration with author & writer Sarah Gerrard-Jones. Sarah AKA @theplantrescuer is a plant lover and goes above and beyond to save the botanical beauties that she comes across in her daily life.
By buying our rescue boxes, you can help us make a dent in the tonnes of waste that's generated by the plant industry every year. As online sales of plants grow, so do the mountains of plants that get discarded. Retailers are reluctant to sell a plant if it has even the slightest imperfection for fear the buyer will complain or demand a refund. The more complaints a retailer gets, the more inclined they are to throw away healthy plants just because they don’t look 'perfect'. Most of us now agree that throwing away vegetables because they’re wonky shouldn’t be an acceptable practice, and yet there are houseplants being discarded on a massive scale for the same reason. This needs to stop.
How many plants are in each box?
Numbers will vary week to week but we guarantee a minimum of 2 plants per box but sometimes more. Plants will be picked at random and will only contain plants that we would be happy rescuing ourselves.
Should I buy a box?
Plants will need some TLC so ideally you will have a basic understanding of what they will need to thrive. If you're looking to learn more about nurturing and rescuing plants then these boxes are a good place to start.
Can I get a refund?
All the plants sold will be imperfect but with the right care will grow - so sorry, no refunds will be given
. The price reflects the condition of the plants.
