If this Earth Day, while stuck at home, you find yourself in need of greenery, know that there’s a new way to get your foliage fix without leaving the house.
A new Washington, DC-based plant subscription service called Grounded is launching today, on Earth Day, at 3:00 PM. Mignon Hemsley and Danuelle Doswell are the two 26-year-old plant moms behind the project. Their goal is to help support mental health by exposing their community to the joy of caring for a living plant as a form of “cheap therapy.” In an interview with DCist, Doswell said, “The black community is not as knowledgeable when it comes to different mental health outlets. So that ignited our business.”
