Following over a year of restrictions here in the UK, and with many office workers still working from home, a lot of us are seeking ways to help our mental and physical well-being. Bringing nature into our daily lives, spending more time in green spaces and keeping active can all help to cultivate a healthy mind and body.  It’s no wonder then that gardening has become a popular activity during lockdown. In fact gardening has been proven to increase our level of happiness and meaningfulness, and is on par with biking, walking or dining out.¹ Simply by having a regular view of greenery has a beneficial impact on our wellbeing².

Promotional Plant on Desk

This leads us on to how promotional seeds and plants could be the ideal marketing tactic to encourage wellbeing amongst your target audience and team.

Why invest in promotional seeds and plants?

1. Show you have their best interests at heart

By making promotional seeds or plants centre stage to your marketing campaign, you will be championing mindfulness and healthy wellbeing. As mentioned above, caring for and being around plants has many health benefits, including:

  • Helps us to practice mindfulness
  • Improves our mood and make us feel happier
  • It’s an active hobby and so will release endorphins which can alleviate anxiety and depression
  • Helps self-esteem and confidence
  • Reduces stress levels and keeps blood pressure lower
  • Increases productivity (by up to 15%)³
  • Improves air quality

2. Help the environment

Plants absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen, which creates a healthier environment to be in. If you want to promote your green credentials, and showcase your commitment to the environment, putting your brand on promotional seeds or plants is a direct and easy way to do so.

3. Sow the seeds of success

Of course, ‘planting a seed’ with promotional seeds and plants is also a clever and creative way to launch a new business, service or product. As your business or offering grows, so will the promotional plant offered to your target audience; a constant reminder of your brand.

4. Long-lasting promotion of your brand

Branded plants or seeds will not only provide an instant brand impression, as they grow, your customer or colleague will be reminded of your kind gesture for months if not years! If the receiver of your gift is office based, desktop plants will provide a daily reminder of your brand and your contact details will be in reach for when they need your service or product.

5. Team building

Promotional seeds and plants can be used as a vehicle for team bonding and building. Planting the seeds as a group activity, or running a friendly growing competition between colleagues can help us to connect and build relationships. This in turn will improve morale and general wellbeing!
