a few words from p+b founder and creative director, lisa waud:

if i were to pick three words that my business embodies, they would be oxygenating, representative, and empowering.

oxygenating, for obvious reasons—we’re in plants. but it’s more than that. we want to bring fresh breath to how you live and work with plants. plants can take us back to early memories, pivotal life moments. they make a house a home, elevate your living space.

representative because that’s what our business is. we take your well wishes, sympathy, or celebratory vibes and bring them to life with flowers and plants. colors, textures, smells. we create a living representation of you.

empowering is something we do everyday. we love to teach and learn about plant care and flower varieties. when we send you home with a new plant and the knowledge of how to make it thrive, that’s empowering.

additionally, i must note, while my staff works with you everyday to achieve these three words, my job is to create an environment that cultivates those within the company. i work to make pot + box an oxygenating workplace—and that’s more than simply plant-filled. i strive to assemble a team that is representative of industry knowledge and of the city of detroit where we live and work. and finally, i can’t imagine building a business that does anything but empower its staff. we’re a work family, and i want everyone to feel safe, valued, heard, and nurtured.
