On Earth Day... Monday this week... I brought attention to the ever increasing Plants as Fashion phenomenon because it is very often (though not always) simply cashing in and commodifying the latest trend in highly, highly wasteful & unsustainable ways. .
Take the new section at Myers I discovered today which is dedicated to interior decor plants. The first two images are of a native bunch in a glass jar... price tag $199.00.
Man-made in a factory production line, possibly China. Plastic and various components/ materials I’m not sure of. And swipe to see the succulents etc. seriously we need to have the study of plants in the school curriculum from year one and repeated every year.
Have we forgotten why it’s so healthy to have living plants in a room or our homes? Have we forgotten plastic waste is pure madness & horrendous landfill?
As soon as a fashion for something springs up do we really need to take leave of our senses?
Thing is ...native plants generally dry out rather beautifully and you purchase real ones for probably a quarter of the price ... & places like @flowersoftheworldbrisbane have brilliant staff who stock organic & highly sustainably produced flowers and plants. Ask them why they do that. It’s a telling story!
YES! Organic, no pesticides, sustainable. No plastic. .
Maybe I’m old fashioned in some ways admitting that over the years I’ve enjoyed visiting Dept stores like Myers @myer ... I’ve experienced such good service at Myers & have never thought of shopping anywhere else for certain items ... there is something about these old world stores and I don’t want to see them disappear. .
However ... maybe the fashion they need to get up to date with is ECO SUSTAINABILITY ... not plant trends in plastic! .
What do you think about the fashion at all costs thing going on with plants? #plantsasfashion#planttrends#trendsplant#plantsofinstagram#plantsmakepeoplehappy#whentheyarenotplastic#plantsplantsplants#plantstyle#plant#plantdecor#planteducation#plasticfree#plasticpollution#living#livingroomdesign#real#realplants#realplantsnotfake#etc#etc#etc

So we wanted to get away this week but couldn’t find anything last minute, so we decided we would do something fun everyday- it was like a mini vacay except we went back home each night 😂- but the kids didn’t mind 😝 .sooo we still haven’t got a new sofa yet... but our old one will just have to do until we find one. Why is it so hard 🤔
Well at least our @missamaraloves rug is amazing ☺️
Happy Friday 🎉
