Environmental policy

Find out what we're doing to continiously improve our impact on the environment, from reforestation to solar power.

We’re committed to continuously improving our impact on the environment. We do this in a few ways: by working internally with our suppliers, supporting positive climate projects and following our eco-design principles.

Our goals

By the end of 2022 we aim to:

  • Fund the planting of thousands trees

  • Invest in projects to offset CO2

  • Generate 120,000 kWh of solar electricity

Ecologi & Eden Reforestation Projects

Climate projects

We support a variety of positive environmental activities with the help of Ecologi.

First up, we provide the funding to plant a tree for every order placed by our customers, so you can get in on the tree planting action too!

Each tree is planted by local people in Madagascar, Kenya and other countries, providing fair wage employment, restoring wildlife habitats and helping to reforest the planet with a variety of trees native to the area.

We also invest in carbon negative projects around the world to offset the CO2 generated by shipping containers from the Far East.

Last but not least, we generate solar electricity to power our office in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk. That covers everything from making cups of tea which fuel our team, to computers, lights and everything in between.

You can scroll down to see how many trees we’ve planted and how much CO2 we've offset at the bottom of our website. You can also view our growing forest.

Our eco-design principles

When we're designing and crafting our range of artificial plants, trees and flowers, there are several eco-design principles that we follow.

These are:

  • Use of low impact materials

  • Use of recyclable materials

  • Optimising our packaging to reduce the space required

  • Using the lowest carbon transport option

  • Removing excessive packaging materials

Our role

We aim to help our growing band of faux plant lovers care for our products, maximise their lifespan and help them dispose of them properly at the end of their life in the most environmentally sensitive ways possible.

We encourage our suppliers to raise their environmental standards and are always on the lookout for opportunities to work with suppliers who have environmental management systems.

Our environmental vision is to make our staff, customers and suppliers aware of the environmental issues important to us, along with the focus of our environmental agenda of continuous improvement.
