Nature is integral to Seedlip. In fact, a seedlip is the name of the basket that farmers wear around their necks to carry and sew seeds with ease. This little-known fact is a nod to our founder, Ben Branson’s 300-year-old farming heritage.
From sourcing botanical ingredients for our spirits, to where we immerse ourselves during our annual ‘Nature Week’ when we disconnect from technology, to partaking in community gardening initiatives, nature is a source of inspiration and a guiding light.
The road to living sustainably is a long one. It’s small steps taken each and every day that amount to leaps and bounds of progress over time. So, with that, we asked our global team to share what they’re doing to give back & protect our planet on Earth Day, and every day.

I use my Ocean Bottle instead of plastic bottles–for every bottle sold, the company collections 1,000 ocean-bound plastic ones!

I try to have plastic-free periods, opting to use a menstrual cup instead of tampons with plastic applicators.
