Born from the nostalgia of childhood days spent caring for plants, Brennan Clarke found a unique and tasty way to bring people back to the garden.
Amborella Organics isn’t your typical candy shop. They satisfy your sweet tooth with sustainable solutions in mind, calling their treats “purpose-driven candy.” Their product is simple but literally loaded with potential: lollipops infused with heirloom seeds of flowers and herbs.
Choose from curious flavours such as Rosemary & Mint, Champagne & Roses, and Lavender & Lemongrass. Your flavour of choice will carry seeds of that plant, embedded inside a biodegradable stick made from recycled paper.
After consumption, simply plant the stick, and let the gardening begin. Take a look:
Wow! What a year 2017 has been. The Amborella family has grown so much; we are in awe and so grateful for the year we’ve had, as well as the love and support you’ve shown us. Creating a material object that transcends its everyday use is all about connection. Connection to soil, connection to each other, and our connection to sustainability’s evolution. Thank you for showing us that our dream is yours. 10 million views to this video created by @nowthisnews & @scoutmaceachron did just that. In 2018, we are debuting a line that will be another extension of the relationship we have with plants. More on that soon. We love you all. Happy New Year! ? ? #eatplantlove (@photobyhmc footage!!)
Brilliant! Hopefully, we’ll see this company roll out more sustainable sweets in the coming years.
A bundle of 12 lollipops goes for around US$27 (AUS$34).
Such a vibrant image! Thanks for capturing our seed-bearing lollipops in nature @trendscaping ?For those of you in Los Angeles or nearby, we can’t wait to see you tomorrow at @figearthsupply for their Winter Solstice Night Market from 4-11PM! So looking forward to the event & meeting the other vendors (for more info on who they are checkout Fig Earth Supply’s IG.) #eatplantlove

Centuries ago, borage flowers were added to drinks to prevent drunkenness. We’re currently pondering how effective that was… Today you may recognize borage flowers in your salad and they’re said to alleviate anxiety and stress. If you’re a beginner gardener, our co-brand with non-profit @zenremedy is for you. Borage isn’t fussy, meaning it doesn’t require quality soil. It’s also water wise and grows to 60cm in height. Plant your stick in a spot that receives the most sun and enjoy this edible flower! (A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this lollipop will be donated to @surfrider to save our ocean.) #eatplantlove @photobyhmc
