Perky Plant (Season 5 Episode 14)
Perky Plant is a fertilizer brand on a mission to improve people’s mental health through plants, awareness, and events that reach young adults at the most at-risk time of their lives. Since our launch, we have donated 2,500+ plants to college students as part of our biannual Buy A Bottle, Donate A Plant campaigns.
Like many others, our team got into plants during the pandemic because we were stuck inside and felt our mental health declining. We’ve always believed that your environment affects your mood, but it wasn’t until we bought half a dozen plants that we realized the power of having living things in your environment. Almost immediately, we were much happier! Thus the birth of Perky Plant.
We’ve donated 2,500+ plants to college students as part of two different Buy A Bottle, Donate A Plant campaigns during Mental Health Awareness month and Suicide Awareness month. On our social channels, we’ve built a community of plant people who care about their own mental health and the mental health of the community around them.
