Our growing ideals
Starting any business venture that stems from a love of the product itself is a gratifying drive like no other...The Ginger Jungle’s seed was first sowed after I realised I had every plant there was to buy at my local garden centres! I then explored many online sellers only to be largely disappointed by the condition most plants arrived at my doorstep in. I decided it was time to put my passion into practice and convert my personal values into my very own house plant company.
Fast forward two years and bigger and better things are starting to happen for The Ginger Jungle (establishing a small united team & soon moving to our new jungle home). With this in mind, I am determinded to maintain the original goals I set out with, by integrating these beliefs into our strong ethos. Now as a team of three, we are proud to uphold these main objectives...
We only want you to receive what we’d hope to receive ourselves. The plants we pick are chosen through our own enthusiasm for all things leafy, and before they reach you they are housed properly, watered, cleaned & pruned as if they were our own. This care is extended to prepping them for the journey ahead in making their way towards you. We take great pride in our packaging as proven in the testimonials given by many happy customers.
As advocates for the colour green (of course) we would like to encourage the natural growth of our planet, and not have any contribution to even the smallest carbon footprint. That’s why we’re working towards being a genuinely sustainable business currently all of our packaging is recyclable or reusable. In the near future we aspire to discontinue any non recyclables at HQ as well.
Having all come from customer service backgrounds, we know that you are our main attribute to growth. Loyalty should be shared both ways, maintaining this attitude means to be attentive, patient & understanding. These attributes only add to our fun working environment, which we wouldn’t dream of changing - the jungle is a wonderful place to be! We hope to convey the experience across to you.
This mentality is not only shared to you and the rest of the team, it includes suppliers, delivery drivers, neighbours & all humans alike - be kind!
Community/inspiring small businesses
We are advocates of our small community & surrounding Sussex areas. To connect means to share and where there is passion, there’s always a story. Exchanging the tales between other local entrepreneurs has created a business support bubble like no other. This micro community aids individual growth where needed, creative positivity, collaborative ventures (and a shoulder to cry on in a global pandemic).
There is no better demonstration of our identity than the narrative of people who make up our community. And remember, if The Ginger Jungle can start operating from a garden shed, what are you capable of achieving?
