Green space is increasingly fashionable within the contemporary lifestyle. Our feeds are constantly surrounded by the potted plant wave.
The 2016 National Gardening Report found that “37% of millennials grow herbs and plants indoors, as opposed to 28% of baby boomers.” Evidently, the ‘Instagrammable’ aesthetic of the plant farm is increasingly attractive to the current generation.
This trend is sponsored by the conscious advocates for the effects global warming and climate change are having on the environment.
However, are we arguably living in the most wasteful age?
Plants should come with a ‘how to keep this plant alive’ manual. We should be more aware of how to live this Guvo lifestyle.
With this great aesthetic, comes great responsibility. How can we ensure the design of this organic lifestyle is sustainable?
