Let's grow a kinder world

As gardeners, we know the power of watching a tiny seed grow into something big and beautiful. The Compassion Project was created with that in mind.


IT ALL STARTED WITH A SEED

To create the Compassion Flower, we worked with horticulturists to hybrid a Pansy which means ‘to think of’ or ‘to consider’ and a Spreading Viola. We wanted it to represent that one act of kindness can spread, just like the flower itself.

THAT INSPIRED A PRODUCT

The sweet, floral notes of our unique Compassion Flower inspired our Limited Edition Hand Soap that was distributed along with our Growing Compassion Gardening Kit to classrooms across the country.
