VertiGrow is an initiative set up within Aster Lion. Aster Lion has been well-known for our focus providing HR and Payroll solutions over the past several years. We’ve grown our reputation by providing professional support to many Multi-National and SME organizations. And now, it’s time for us to GO GREEN!
To do this we launched this initiative VertiGrow with the mission to make cities green. To kick things off, Aster Lion has fully sponsored a vertical garden at Heathfield International School in Bangkok. Moving forward, we will work with our clients who express interest in providing corporate sponsorship to replicate this project to deploy vertical and urban gardens across multiple schools in our mission to make cities green!
Important things plants do for cities
Makes the air cleaner
Trees & plants can absorb up to 150kg of CO2 per year helping to reduce pollution
Keeps us cool
Cities aligned with trees & plants can experience temperatures lowered by 6 degrees
Makes us happier
Being surrounded by trees & plants makes us less stressed and generally happier
To make cities Green!
For each project, we bring in a team of experts to educate students on how to set up gardening projects at home.
We hope that with each school project, there is the potential to inspire individuals to become more involved in sustainability.
Starting with a single project fully sponsored by Aster Lion, our aim is to scale this venture by partnering with corporate sponsors.
Partnering with schools to leverage their vertical landscape to set up vertical gardens and urban gardens.
Securing corporate sponsorship to set up and support these projects.
Through education, awareness and ongoing sponsorship, continue to scale by setting up new vertical and urban gardens.
Working with our local partner in Thailand to deploy projects. Leveraging their knowledge and years of experience setting up Vertical Gardens.
