As the years go by I understand more and more about the world around me and how it important it is to make sure that we look after it. Plus, I am in the process of a great big clear-out thanks to the Kon Marie Method and, as a result, I want to make sure that clutter does not start to reappear in our house – especially in my office.
When I was approached by Sprout, I realised that my desk could become a useful, eco-friendly place to be.
In 2013 Sprout launched the world’s first sustainable pencil that can be planted once the stub is too short to write with. The Sprout pencil has a capsule at the end containing seeds that germinate when they get in contact with soil and water. It comes in 13 different plant varieties and has become an international success in more than 60 countries. Their customers include Disney, IKEA and the Bank of America.
Since then they have introduced more products to their range including greeting cards which can be planted afterwards and grow into flowers and tiny gardens which sit on your windowsill or desk containing micro-greens which you can cultivate all year.
Sprout is now launching its latest limited edition series with a romantic touch. These three new products are the perfect gift if you are looking for something that can grow and spread joy a long time after you’ve given it. Another thing you will love about them is the fact that all products are made from sustainable quality materials and manufactured under responsible conditions.
Their limited edition Valentine’s range is available in their webshop until Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2016.
The Sprout Valentine Edition range consists of:
Sprout pencils, Valentine edition
Three new pencil variants have been engraved with love messages like Grow old with me and Be my Valentine They will sprout into Forget me not, Sweet Pea with pastel coloured flowers and wild strawberries. The pencils are made from sustainable FSC-certified wood and contain 100% biodegradable materials. They germinate about three weeks after planting them, depending on the type of plant.
Sprout cards, Valentine edition
The stylish decorated card with the inscription “Happy Valentine” and “Will you grow old with me?” can melt the heart of even the most hardcore Valentine-sceptic. You can plant the card in its full size or tear it into pieces first. Three weeks after planting it you will see the sprouts of different wild flowers. The paper is made from 100% recycled paper, and the seeds are non-GMO.
Tiny Gardens by Sprout, Valentine edition
The tiny gardens are carefully designed window boxes made from sustainable FSC-certified cardboard. They contain hemp mats instead of soil, which makes it easy and hygienic to cultivate your own microgreens. The seeds will grow into Mizuna-sprouts which heart shaped leaves have a fresh and spicy taste. They are ready to eat within 5-7 days.
To celebrate their new Valentine’s range, the lovely people at Sprout are giving 5 of my lucky readers the chance to win a pack of 5 of their own tiny gardens. The packs contain 1 basil, 1 cress, 1 broccoli, 1 sunflower and 1 radish and they all grow without the need for soil. Take a look at this short video to see how they work:
