7 Brands to Support for Earth Day and All Year-Round

Let’s leave the land for a hot second and take a deep dive into the sea to check out a sustainable brand that’s ocean-focused — Planted Seeds. In partnership with local harvesters, they use innovative planting and seeding methods to cultivate their St. Lucia sea moss in a way that preserves the ocean’s natural balance.
Unlike wild harvesting, eco-farming of sea moss doesn’t involve stripping the entire plant from its natural habitat, which can have detrimental effects on the environment. Instead, Planted Seeds use a seeding method where only small sections of the plant are harvested, leaving the rest to regenerate and continue its natural growth cycle. This method ensures a consistent supply of sea moss while also preserving the delicate balance of the ocean’s ecosystem.
Their commitment to sustainable practices extends beyond our harvesting methods. They take measures to reduce their carbon footprint and waste, including the use of biodegradable packaging materials and partnering with local organizations to develop recycling programs.
