Greenif-i was founded with the goal of helping our customers achieve a happier and healthier life through biophilia – our biological need to connect with nature. With our plant subscription service, you can receive a lush and healthy indoor plant delivered to your doorstep every month.
As you grow your collection of plant buddies through Geenif-i's easy subscription service, your home will steadily fill with thriving greenery. At a time when we spend an average of 90% of our time indoors, we often sacrifice our overall health and mental wellbeing to meet our other obligations.
How nature can help
As humans, most of our time here on earth has been spent evolving in nature. We are genetically determined to love the natural world – it is in our DNA. This means that connecting with nature is just as important to us as a good diet and exercise.
Upon learning the science behind why we feel better when spending time in nature, our founder Jacob Kearnes wanted to create an easy way for us to achieve this natural connection that is vital for our health.
And although the science behind why we feel better when immersed in the natural world has only become clear in recent years, the Japanese have known this for centuries. Commonly known in Japan as Shinrin yoku, the art of forest bathing has been gaining popularity across the globe for its amazing benefits.
Put simply, forest bathing means spending time in a natural setting and focusing on all of the sights and sounds around you. However, most of us don’t have the time in our busy lives to be amongst nature as much as we need. Here at Greenif-i, we're changing that.
Bringing the art of forest bathing into your home
There have been many studies on the benefits that forest bathing can provide for both our physical and mental health. Research conducted by The Forest Bathing Institute has shown that spending time in nature can significantly boost our immune system, increase problem solving and creativity, reduce stress levels and improve mood as well as increase the quality of our sleep.
Much of this is a result of an organic compound released naturally by trees known as Phytoncides. A recent study found that exposure to this compound resulted in a 50% increase in the number of our body’s Natural Killer Cells that are responsible for fighting off cancer and infections.
It is because of these astonishing benefits that we have made it our mission to create awareness for this and help our customers achieve some of the benefits without even leaving their homes.
We're changing the world, one tree at a time
We've partnered with OneTreePlanted - a non-profit organisation with a focus on global reforestation. For every plant we sell, we’ll be planting a tree on your behalf.
From the little plants we sell, we plan for very big trees to grow!
Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink and provide habitats to over 80% of the world's creatures. Forests provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people, absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere, and are key ingredients in 25% of all medicines.
With your help, not only can we begin to restore nature and biodiversity, but we can also provide the world with more places where people can enjoy the benefits of forest bathing to live happier and healthier lives!
By signing up for our easy and affordable plant subscription, you’ll feel proud knowing that as your own mini forest grows, you're contributing to the growth of forests all across the world.
