World Environment Day 2024

Land Restoration, Desertification & Drought Resilience

Today is World Environment Day, and this year's theme is Revive Lands, End Desertification and Secure Water. From forests to mountains and oceans to cities our livelihood and survival is dependent on the health of our ecosystems. They are the web of life here on planet Earth. It's all about being a part of #GenerationRestoration.

Whether it's planting trees, composting, having bees, living a more sustainable life, reducing your reliance on single use plastics or growing your own produce at home - we can all make small changes, every day, to restore the planet.  

Healthy ecosystems have so many benefits for humankind, wildlife and nature. It’s vital that we focus on strengthening them and preventing them from degrading. While we can’t go back and change what has been done, we can take action, make choices and raise our voices to make a difference.  

Here at Seed & Sprout, we’re passionate about doing less harm, and more good. We see everyday as World Environment Day and work hard to lessen our load on the planet. We’re constantly thinking of ways we can reimagine, recreate and restore the way we do things to help strengthen our ecosystems. 


Our vision has always been to help people reimagine their life without relying on single-use plastics. To help guide our community on simple swaps to eliminate plastic from their lives - no matter where they are on their sustainability journey. This vision is at the core of everything we do, because we believe there’s no planet B.  

We’re optimistic that as a collective we can change. Change doesn’t need to be massive or complicated. We can all start today with small, manageable changes. Our eco-friendly products are designed to make plastic-free swaps seamless and are built to last and either recyclable, zero waste or home compostable. Examples of this include;

  • Our CrunchBox: this innovative design is made entirely from stainless steel so you’ll have it forever. It can be used year after year, and even passed down from sibling to sibling - and if it does reach an end of life - it is recyclable!
  • Our Farmers Market Set: made from GOTS certified organic cotton ensuring the protection of both people and the planet. This set is long-lasting and washable - so you can use them time and time again without reaching for plastic bags. 
  • Our Eco Cleaning Set & Limited Edition Composting Bundle: instead of traditional plastic sponges & cleaning gear that contains microplastics, our plastic-free cleaning sets are made from natural plant fibre cellulose - making them home or industrial compostable. 

We’re not perfect (no one is!), but we are 100% dedicated to finding ways that we can do less harm, and more good. We’re committed to a better future and to finding alternatives to single-use plastics that help people lessen their impact on our beautiful planet.  

We will continue to share with you, our community, helpful tips and ideas to empower you to make sustainable choices in your own life. Our hope is to inspire you to reimagine a better future and encourage you to make small changes, every day in the right direction. 


We’re lucky to have passionate advocates for a better world here at Seed & Sprout! Our team is made up of those starting out on their eco journey right through to eco-warriors living almost completely waste free. We’ve developed our Sustainability Committee to discuss, share and brainstorm ways we can recreate how to be more environmentally sustainable, both at home and HQ.

Here's how we do Less Harm & More Good:




We are big believers that every single person can make a difference. From switching to reusables and encouraging our friends to make earth-friendly choices - to changing our diets and making our own cleaning products; all of these actions lessen the load on our planet. 

As a business, we feel we have a responsibility to step up and lead the way in restoring Planet Earth
