When we heard 1 in 5 plants are endangered it just didn't sit right with us. So, we're setting out to help preserve the Purple Coneflower. And you can join us.

We’re Doing Our Part for Preservation

As gardeners, we've learned that all things, big or small, play their part. Sometimes it's the smallest things, though, that we're most at risk of losing.

Take the Purple Coneflower. When this humble but mighty flower thrives so too does the ecosystem it grows in. Which is why preserving it matters. Not just for butterflies, bees and birds but for our grandkids, too.

Our Preservation Garden

Every Hand Soap Purchased = 1 Endangered Plant, Planted*

Seedling

During Earth Month 2019, for every Mrs. Meyer's Hand Soap purchased*, we planted a Purple Coneflower, creating a sanctuary for the flower at the historic Lincoln Park Conservatory in Chicago. And doesn't it go to show, when we each do our part, we can make a lasting impact.
