Climate positive plants

Our vision for a sustainable online plant shop

Scientists all around the world are warning about global warming and its impact. The reason: tons of CO2 are being emitted every day and e-commerce has a major role in this. In Germany alone, around 5.8 million parcels are sent every day, which corresponds to CO2 emissions of 2,906 tons. That's as much as 1,264 cross-country flights from Frankfurt to New York. And that daily.

Our solution
We calculate the CO2 emission for every plant we ship and compensate it completely.

How can a plant not be climate positive?

If we think about plants, we automatically think about fresh air. And of course, plants bind CO2, as they need it to grow. However, growing plants is different from growing trees in the forest. In order to produce a plant for sale, greenhouses have to be heated and water has to be treated for several months - sometimes even years. So by the time your plant is packed, a lot of CO2 has already been emitted.

110% climate positive

We have been thinking a lot about how we can have a positive impact on the world. As a company, we believe that we have a fundamental responsibility towards the environment.

While cultivation, growing and shipping, we already try to save as much CO2 as possible. Transport distances are being optimized and we mainly use solar energy for heating. In addition, we not only offset the CO2-emissions of each plant shipped, but also another 10% through the cultivation of bamboo.

Why we use bamboo to compensate CO2

  1. Bamboo grows faster than trees
  2. 35% more CO2 capacity as a tree of the same size
  3. Because of it’s resistance, pesticides can be avoided during cultivation
  4. Already cut stems grow back
  5. Bamboo needs little water to grow

Bamboo Village Uganda

The cultivation of bamboo in Bamboo Village Uganda not only compensates CO2 but is also a valuable and sustainable resource to support people in Uganda. The grown bamboo is, among other things, used for building houses in Uganda and thus indirectly provides jobs in addition to the direct employment in Bamboo Village. Besides, a real bamboo forest is created in Uganda, which can prevent the expansion of the desert.
