Supplier Gemline (PPAI 113948, S11) has announced a strategic partnership with Chicago, Illinois-based gardening brand Modern Sprout that brings its sustainable indoor and outdoor gardening products to the promotional products market.

Modern Sprout’s mission is to uncomplicate indoor gardening and does so through the use of hydroponics redesigned to create beautiful, space‐savvy products. Since its founding in 2013, Modern Sprout has been committed to domestic sourcing and manufacturing when possible, reducing plastic materials in its products and packaging, and building its products with sustainable materials. Modern Sprout is also committed to giving back—from donating a percentage of proceeds to American Forests and the Pollinator Partnership for reforestation and ecosystem protection, to partnering with the Heartland Alliance to provide employment for Chicago’s most vulnerable residents.

“As houseplants and gardening enjoy a growth spurt in popularity, we are excited to introduce these style‐savvy green products to our customers providing sustainable solutions to the modern challenges of indoor and desktop gardening,” says Jonathan Isaacson, CEO at Lawrence, Massachusetts-headquartered Gemline. “With their fresh innovative products and commitment to sustainability and giving back, Modern Sprout is the perfect complement to Gemline’s expanding brand portfolio.”
