MORINGA / MALUNGGAY CUTTING 
Low-maintenance + drought-resistant + beginner-friendly

100% FREE 
We are giving away moringa cuttings to people who want to start planting trees in their own spaces. These are completely free, just pay for shipping or swing by our place.
Please note that these cuttings are not big branches, but more like skinny twigs. We cut these from our potted little moringa trees. Please only cart one or two cuttings so we can share our cuttings with more people. You can easily propagate more with your own cuttings, once you have one plant to work with. We would also love it if you shared your future cuttings with your own friends and family and encouraged them to grow their own food. Don't forget to tag us in your posts!
One order is inclusive of one moringa cutting. Please see product how-tos and shipping information in the tabs below.
If it's marked out of stock, be sure to check back another day. We will keep updating this page when we have more moringa twigs to give away.

Moringa is a superfood and also has a number of medicinal applications, but do you know that they have the potential to play a very important role in relation to the climate crisis?

One of the largest problems inflicted by climate change is desertification. Because Moringa oleifera trees grow fast and well in dry areas, they have great potential when it comes to battling desertification. The presence of long taproot makes the Moringa resistant to periods of drought, making it a reliable source of food despite unreliable growing conditions.

Moringa is also an effective way to sequester carbon from the environment. According to a Japanese study in 2009, the rate of absorption or assimilation of carbon dioxide by the moringa tree is twenty times (20x) higher than that of general vegetation and fifty times (50x) higher when compared to the Japanese cedar tree. The moringa tree therefore will be a useful tool in slowing the climate crisis in that, one (1) moringa tree will be equivalent to the effectiveness of fifty (50) Japanese cedar trees in absorbing carbon dioxide.

STEP 1
Get the largest pot you can find. Fill it with soil. (Or choose a spot in your backyard where you wouldn't mind growing a large tree. Moringa trees can get pretty big when left to their own devices..)

STEP 2
Bury about 1/2 to 2/3 of the twig into the soil.

STEP 3
Water the soil around it generously, every day, until some shoots come out.

STEP 4
Be patient with it because it'll look dead for couple of weeks before you see new growth.

PACKAGING
Please expect all items to be packaged in very minimal used / recycled / secondhand paper bags or cardboard boxes. We try to minimize our carbon footprint where we can, when we can, and as much as we can, and refuse to procure new packaging materials for our products. Rule #1 of Zero Waste is REFUSE. All single-use packaging materials, no matter how compostable, take an inordinate amount of resources (e.g. water, fuel, electricity, trees, etc.) to manufacture. This is why we prefer to solicit used paper bags and boxes via Buhay Zero Waste Preloved, an online decluttering and dumpster-diving platform that we run. Our parcels don't always look pretty, but they have a much much smaller impact on the environment than most product packaging out there claiming to be "eco-friendly."
