Geb & Green's Roots
Our roots are firmly planted in the farming industry, and with 25+ years of growing experience, we understand the importance of sustainability. In truth, many of our little leafy friends we fill our homes with are having a negative effect on our planet.
To us, it seems crazy that the ‘green’ we bring into our home, whilst being great for our wellbeing, can be terrible for the earth… so that’s why we formed Geb & Green.
We want to provide an easy, sustainable alternative for our plant obsession – removing nasty peat from our plants and horticulture – growing happy, healthy, plants in a recycled peat free medium.
What matters to us
Sustainable planet friendly houseplants for all plant lovers
Protecting & restoring peatland areas is critical to combatting climate change. Peatlands store 30% of global carbon, so when they're drained or damaged, they can seriously impact climate change.
Currently, drained peatlands emit around two gigatonnes of CO2 every year, accounting for almost 6% of all global greenhouse gas emissions.
Losing 5% of UK peatland carbon is equivalent to the UK’s entire annual greenhouse gas emissions.
2. A Greener Choice
Transforming the Houseplant Industry one plant at a time.
There are currently very few options to buy peat free houseplants in the UK, but we're here to change that.
Our plants are grown right here in Cambridgeshire, England, and are 97% peat free (we are working on the last 3%), with no virgin plastic and 100% recycled packaging.
No greenwashing or big supply chains, just honest, beautiful houseplants with a guilt-free guarantee.
Looking after our people and planet
Did you know plants have been proven to purify our air and decrease levels of stress, anxiety, and depression.
Fun Fact: Extensive research by NASA has revealed that houseplants can remove up to 87% of air toxins in 24 hours.
We strive to make the houseplant industry good for the planet as well as good for us.
Our promise for the future
Our commitment to sustainability is at our core, and always will be.
- We promise to continue to strive to be as sustainable as we can be and to consider every small detail that goes into our houseplants. We are laying the foundation for change and growing the branches for an environmentally positive houseplant industry.
- We promise to be open and honest in our commitment to sustainability. No more greenwashing. No more excuses.
- We promise to never stop working towards positively changing the houseplant industry.
That way, you can enjoy all the benefits that houseplants will bring, without costing the earth (in more ways than one).
We're all about growth
We’re committed to continually improving our growing methods and materials by researching and aiming for the highest possible standards.
We appreciate that as time goes on and our business expands, there will always be room for improvement. So, from the wages of our workers to the carbon footprint of our plants and even our marketing methods, we'll never stop obsessing over every detail to make sure we're doing the best we possibly can.
