Secret Planter: Regrowing a PaperCut Tradition

By Tenaea Zerner, PaperCut: It’s no secret PaperCut loves trees. But also green things in general. Our office is home to lots of indoor plants and trees, which we all missed so much when we had to work from home during COVID-19. In fact, quite a few PaperCutters suddenly grew green thumbs during the lockdowns so as to recreate these mini-indoor jungles.

Returning to the office after more than half a year in lockdown, I spotted a couple of personal plants on desks that sadly hadn’t survived Melbourne’s (most recent) 6th lockdown. As sad as their dried and wilted leaves made me, it got me thinking about a pre-COVID tradition PaperCut started back in 2018 called Secret Planter.
