A few weeks ago I found such a nice initiative: het Plantenasiel, or in English: the plant shelter. The plant shelter is located in Amsterdam and is founded by Rachelle. She thought it was horrible how some people treated their plants and decided to do something about it. She gives everyone who sees their plants die because they can’t take care of it, the option to bring it to her. She will take care of it and make sure it gets to a lovely new home. I think this is one of the best initiatives I’ve seen in a while! I hope there will be more plant shelters around the globe one day. You can follow the adventures of the plant shelter on Facebook and on Tumblr.

    Heel tof inderdaad! In Zweden bestond al iets gelijkaardigs, een tweedehands plantenwinkel, heb ik ook ooit over geblogd! Daar krijg je als je een plantje koopt ook het achtergrondverhaal van de vorige eigenaar mee. Zo fijn!
