We plant a tree for every item sold!
Well, actually you do! And here's how..
Here at Potty Mouth HQ, our goal is to offer fresh, sexy, and interesting houseplants at affordable prices. But, we also think it’s important to take care of the planet while we're at it. Not just to offset our Co2 emissions, but also to contribute to the re-growing of wildlife habitats and raising awareness.
Whilst we aim to work with as many local brands/suppliers to help reduce our carbon footprint, we know that shipping plants from the Netherlands, and then delivering to you guys isn't that great for the planet. So we wanted to make a positive contribution, while involving you guys in the process. A combined effort of giving back to our planet.
Why a tree you ask? Trees play a key role in our ecosystems, and cutting them has devastating effects. Deforestation not only affects our flora and fauna, but it also affects humans alike. Pollution, species extinctions, floods, desertification, food shortage, poverty and migrations are just some of the problems that deforestation brings along.
That's why we've partnered up with Tree-Nation to support their forestry efforts. An organisation dedicated to fighting climate change. They currently have 255 planting projects from 33 different countries. To which we are supporting Project Eden.
Project Eden began its 'Reforestation Project' in 2015 to help improve local livelihoods and restore forests in areas of critical importance. Eden has been currently working in Madagascar, Haiti, Nepal, Indonesia, Mozambique, Kenya and beyond. We are currently helping to plant trees in Nepal and Madagascar.
How it works
So you've made a purchase or are thinking of making a purchase online, fabulous, we love you already! After you've placed your order you will first receive a confirmation email from us about your order, with a receipt of your purchase. You will also receive a separate email with the title 'Potty Mouth offered you a tree on Tree-Nation.'
For every item purchased on our website, we will plant 1 tree (example: 3 plants and 1 pot = 4 trees). If you do not see it in your inbox, please check your spam inbox.
The email will contain a link that will take you to our Tree Nation page, where you can plant your tree(s) in just 1 click! And just like that, you have now officially contributed to project Eden!
