FIRST DAY ON THE JOB! Plantables is extremely excited to welcome our newest worker, (drumroll please) Erica!! We are so fortunate to have added this highly skilled young women to our team. She will be assisting us on all packaging and Bee Bomb and paper making duties. On her first ever shift, she helped make over 180 Bee Bombs (while getting a little dirty)! Welcome, Welcome Erica!!
HAPPY HAPPY EARTH DAY EVERYONE!! It’s definitely one of Plantables’ favorite days of the year! On this day, we are reminded of the awesome responsibility each one of us has to this beautiful earth. And, of course, to be mindful of the pollinator crisis that we’ve seen in recent years. So on this Earth Day, please take The Plantables Pledge to:
1. Plant flowers that provide food for pollinators
2. Eliminate pesticides in your garden and lawn
3. Provide a shallow water basin for pollinators
4. Buy honey from local beekeepers who use sustainable practices
5. Purchase pesticide-free food
A REALLY KIND DAY AT PLANTABLES! Andrew Young from the KIND Snack Company visited the Plantables warehouse this morning. He picked up his special promotional Plantables Bee Bombs that we made for his wonderful company. Also during his visit, he surprised us all by giving us dozens of free KIND bars (for our workers and volunteers). Now we know why his company is called, KIND.
We are so very proud of our worker Nick and what he has accomplished at Plantables. He has completely taken ownership of Station A (our paper-pulp station) and dazzles us with his independence. Like so many other workers of all abilities, Nick only needed an opportunity. Please watch this video of our Amazing Nick.
Follow our progress as we get this venture up and running.
