Utilising our business experience working for large corporates for over twenty five years, we decided to create a multi-brand home and garden gift oriented company that offered innovative new designs for practical and utilitarian products – affording something different for people that enjoyed a similar lifestyle and ethos, or that were perhaps looking for an unusual and competitively priced gift for friends and loved ones. We were determined to design and manufacture all of our own products in an ethical and sustainable way – and not buy ‘off the shelf’!
Another reason for establishing Jardinopia was to create a vehicle through which we could actively support worthy causes close to our hearts. We therefore donate a portion of our profits to causes that are important to us. Our main aim for the ‘Potty Feet’ brand is to help impoverished communities to ‘get back on their feet’. For ‘Cane Companions’ it is to ‘help restore vision in the poorest communities’, and for ‘Pot Buddies’ our donations are centred around wildlife based charities.
Over the next few years we will be launching many new additional brands of home and garden gift related products for both adults and children – all designed and produced by us – and we will be diversifying our good cause donations to reflect these. So, watch this space!
To commence the journey, we developed and custom-designed a range of plant pot feet under the company brand ‘Potty Feet’, which we think appropriately reflected our quirky but useful product. Our now multi award-winning Potty Feet come beautifully presented in recycled kraft card packaging, and make ideal gifts all year round and for any occasion. We launched our sister brand ‘Cane Companions’ (also now award winning) in 2019 and Pot Buddies, Feeder Friends and Daisy n Jack in 2020.
Jardinopia also cooperate with the licence holders for Beatrix Potter, Flower Fairies, Wallace & Gromit and Shaun the Sheep across our Brands. We sell to both trade and direct to consumers and try to source, package and protect our environment in a responsible and sustainable way at all times.
