We founded Bosque about two years ago to bring more green into your homes. To make it easy to have plants at home, keep them alive and enjoy them for a long time. In the process, we came across an industry that is already fundamentally unsustainable. Plants are allowed to die here as quickly as possible to be replaced as soon as possible. After all, there is money to be made from this.
Our approach is a different one. Our goal is to make sure that your plants live long so that you don't have to buy new ones all the time. This saves resources for growing, packaging and transport.
When selecting our growers, we pay attention to sustainability. Our suppliers have joined the FSI 2020 initiative to drive positive changes towards sustainable production and trade in plants.
We have also set ourselves the goal of being carbon neutral by the end of 2020. This will make us the first co2-neutral plant shop in Germany. This means that the CO2 footprint of the entire company will be eliminated step by step, from breeding and transport to the electricity or hosting provider.
First we will measure the emissions of all goods, their raw materials and their life cycle. Next, we reduce our impact by including things like natural and recycled materials, reducing packaging or eliminating it altogether. Then we offset what is left over through climate projects. These measures make us climate-neutral in the first step, but the journey does not end there. We want to grow bigger, so that we can go further back to the source in the supply chain, question the methods of the growers and break new ground together. We have limited resources to do so and are far from being heard everywhere, but we want to implement things step by step to create a sustainable future. And we can only do this if we hold each other accountable.

Together with Ono Mobility, we want to bring our Plant-Boxes to your door in the near future, emission-free and efficiently. The construction allows you to drive into the third backyard and use the cycle path. Traffic, good bye.
