Our Commitment to Packaging & Shipping Sustainability

Shipping live plants is no joke. They’re fragile, they’re fussy, sometimes they are really heavy, and they’re literally living plants! As you can imagine, there’s a lot involved with figuring out how we can ship live plants - efficiently, sustainably, and safely - all around the country.

Here's how we do it.

Plant-Based Moisture Holding Bags

As an alternative to wrapping plants with plastic, each plant from Sow Exotic ships in a plant-based biodegradable bag to lock in moisture and keep soil in place during transit.

We currently use two types of moisture-holding spill proof bags. Both are certified Compostable by BPI and meet ASTM D6400 and European Standard EN 13432 for compostability.
