Plant People

Dear Plant People,

We write with sadness and anger regarding the recent killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Tony McDade and countless others. Again, we are reminded of the systemic racism that permeates law enforcement, our political institutions and society as a whole. We stand in solidarity with black individuals and people of color who continue to be violently targeted. 

As a company dedicated to environmentalism, we challenge the status quo and impart positive change. We should have spoken up sooner. We are committed to doing more to combat injustice and support the BIPOC community. 

Additionally, as a small business in the hemp and herbal industry, we understand our responsibility to use our platform and resources and to take action. Particularly, we recognize the ways in which cannabis has been weaponized against people of color and contributed to the mass incarceration of black and brown people. 

We condemn any act of racism, violence and hate. We reject neutrality. And we commit to living up to our values and acting with integrity not just in the face of this difficult moment, but by investing in long term commitments to organizations and movements that are leading the charge and doing the work.

  • We donated to Campaign Zero with the hope of limiting police interventions, improving community interactions and ensuring accountability  
  • We will offer ongoing financial support to organizations like, Reclaim the Block, Fair Fight and EJI that work for restorative justice
  • We will invest further in our program with American Forests, which includes social equity - nature as essential infrastructure
  • We continue to petition for equity in exercising the right to vote for change
  • We are completing Layla Saad’s White Supremacy and Me workbook and we are investing in anti-racist education, resources and actionable steps for our staff and community 
  • We will continue to diversify our hires, ensuring our team reflects people of all backgrounds

We are committed to working together, learning and growing as individuals and as a company to better serve our community. This conversation must not stop here. We would love to hear from you, whether that be suggestions or feedback. 

With care and warmth, 
Gabe and Hud
