Woolworths Announces Ooshies Will Be Replaced By New Enviro-Friendly Series

Woolworths has announced that the wildly popular collectible Ooshies will soon be replaced by a new environmentally-friendly series ‘Discovery Gardens’.

The garden-themed collectibles is based on the successful ‘Little Garden’ which has previously been rolled out in New Zealand and South Africa.

The alternative to the plastic mini-figurines, Discovery Garden will allow keen shoppers to collect one of 24 plantable seed packs with each qualifying spend.

According to the New Zealand’s ‘Little Garden’ website, each seed package contains:

  1. A Seed Mat or Seed Sachet –
    Seed Mat: a small number of seeds of the same plant type e.g. herb or vegetable, are embedded in biodegradable paper
    Seed Sachet: a small number of seeds of the same plant type e.g. herb or vegetable, are packed into a small foil sachet.
  2. A Soil Tablet – a brown dehydrated growing medium pressed into a compact round shape
  3. A Pot – a small, fully biodegradable seedling pot for putting the soil and seeds into
  4. A Seed Label – a coloured cardboard label that will identify what’s growing in each pot

A Woolworths spokesperson said: “Woolworths is excited to confirm that we will be launching Woolworths Discovery Garden in September, a new collectible designed to give Australians of all ages the opportunity to grow their very own fresh food.”

The news comes in the wake of backlash towards both Woolworth’s Lion King Ooshies and Coles’ Little Shop mini-figurines causing an insurmountable amount of non-biodegradable waste, destined for landfill.
