The Sill Origin Story

Est. 2012

The Sill first took root in 2012, when founder Eliza Blank saw a problem in the home plant industry. Although she loved plants, it turns out that living in a sixth-floor apartment with only one window facing a brick wall is not conducive to gardening. Blank realized that her situation was far from unique, and the seed of The Sill was planted. Although her team quickly left the new business, Blank began growing her company based on the philosophy that anyone can and should be able to garden. Today, The Sill has sprouted into a nationwide giant, and adorns the windows and walls of millions of homes.

The Science of The Sill

Americans spend 90% of their days indoors, a number that has only risen since the time of the plague. The Sill helps bring the outside in, with plants and flowers that require very little care. From air plants, which grow outside of soil, to succulents, which can grow for weeks without water, even the blackest of thumbs will be hard-pressed to have trouble. And the benefits are incredible: besides cleaning the air we breathe, studies have shown that plants increase productivity, creativity, and attention span. Why are you still reading this without a fern to keep you company?

The Soul of The Sill

Let’s not beat around the bush: isolation and days spent indoors are extremely detrimental to mental health. Right now, we’re so preoccupied with our physical health that we often disregard our minds. The Sill offers a panacea for body and mind; caring for plants has shown to have extraordinary effects on our psyche.
