My name is Marilla and i'm the creator & illustrator of Hello Botany. I am from Hobart, Tasmania and my cards are proudly designed and printed here too.
My cards are inspired by a love for plants and people.
My hope is that I will not only supply greeting cards but a canvas for people to bring joy to others. The act of giving and speaking words of life is beautiful and should be done more often! Too many people in this world don't know their value and worth and i'm a strong believer that a little bit of kindness can go a long way.
A little about myself, I am a certified horticulturalist, wife and soon to be mum! It brings be so much pleasure running this small business from home. I'm very thankful for each and every purchase that I see come through. In a world of mass production and consumerism, supporting local/small business has never been more important.
It is important to me that this business is environmentally conscious. The paper our cards are printed on is manufactured under strict environmental management systems using wind generated electricity and is made carbon neutral by offsetting thermal manufacturing emissions. It is accredited both Carbon Neutral and FSC Mixed Sources certified.
The brown kraft envelopes we use are Australian made from 100% recycled post consumer waste. The white envelopes are made from 30% recycled post consumer waste, are carbon neutral and made using wind power.
