Our sustainability journey

At Evergreen Garden Care we take our environmental responsibility seriously. We know it’s important to develop products in a sustainable way, right from the sourcing of materials, manufacturing and ultimately the recycling of packaging after use. Our ambition is to make sustainable gardening commonplace.

Here are just some of the changes we’ve made and continue to make to drive sustainability within our business:
virgin plastic

We’ve reduced the amount of virgin plastic used in our packaging by 800 tonnes and in turn reduced C02 emissions by 2400 tonnes!

responsibly source raw materials

We responsibly source raw materials and where possible recycle or reuse these in order to minimise the volume of waste generated.

100% recyclable

The bags containing our growing media are already 100% recyclable.

peat free & peat reduced

We use peat free and peat reduced growing media alternatives, with sustainable materials such as green compost, barks and organic alternatives.

bottles

Many of our bottles already contain 95% recycled material but we’re aiming to have all our products in recycled packaging.

natural formulations

40% of our product portfolio is already made from natural formulations but we’re looking to achieve 70% by 2021.
