PLANTZ is connected in our community and industry. In the community, we are engaged in some of the organizations and chambers of commerce that our customers have told us are important to them.
For both the Tampa Bay Chamber and the Lakeland Chamber of Commerce, PLANTZ provides office plants in the chamber offices in trade for member benefits through our plant care services. We support dozens of chamber events each year with the plant rental of foliage and seasonal plants to make their events even more special.
PLANTZ president Steve Stanford is a 2011 graduate of the Tampa Bay Chamber’s Leadership Tampa program and maintains membership in the Leadership Tampa alumni organization and has served on its advisory board. Leadership Tampa and the alumni organization introduce community and business leaders to major facets of the community with the objective of seeing issues, problems, and successes from a different perspective.
Recognizing the business growth depends on new ideas and innovations, PLANTZ is proud to support two local business incubators– Tampa Bay Wave and Embarc Collective – with discounted plant maintenance services. Having foliage plants in and around current and future business leaders is a source of pride for the PLANTZ team.
We support industry organizations the National Interiorscape Network and Green Plants for Green Buildings. Both organizations are active in promoting professionalism in the industry and committed to studying how plants are a healthful addition to office and interior environments and contribute to an interior’s biophilic quotient.
With Florida being the number-one producer and marketer of foliage plants nationwide, PLANTZ is proud to support the Florida Nursery Growers and Landscape Association (FNGLA) – representing Florida’s nursery and landscape industries which generate over $30 billion annually. Each year, PLANTZ and its team support the FNGLA’s Tropical Plant International Expo making presentations and serving as hosts when the event is in Tampa.
