Here at Plant Designs, we believe that taking care of the environment is a collective responsibility. That’s why we consider our environmental impact in all aspects of our business, and are trying hard to become more sustainable in the ways that we carry out our work.
By offering click and collect instead of home delivery, we’re reducing the environmental impact of our plants by cutting down on transportation emissions. What’s more, we can avoid the needless plastic waste that comes with delivery packaging.
Plastic grow pots can’t be recycled with regular household waste, so if you bring us your old pots we’ll take them free of charge and ensure that they are properly recycled by our specialist partners.
Our staff take public transport wherever possible, walking and cycling when it’s not. On the occasion that we need to use vans (for example, when getting plants delivered to our shops), we have a consignment of electric vehicles.
In recent years we have changed our suppliers of certain products and services we use everyday, all with the aim of operating more sustainably.
We work digitally where possible and use recycled paper materials when it’s not. Our waste management company is entirely green – we’ve also switched to responsible energy providers in our offices. Even our toilet paper is eco-friendly.
We’re committed to working with the greenest suppliers in more ways than one. Learn more about the growers we work with, including their eco credentials.
