PLASTICS - HOW WE REDUCE OUR IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT
Biemond Nurseries work with key industry bodies to assist in the reduction of our plastic waste
Most of the time you can't buy a plant without a pot. Plastic is an unavoidable part of what we do here, however, we work hard to recycle & reuse plastics where possible to limit our impact on the environment. While we use brand new pots for hygiene purposes, we recycle the trays in which the plants are transported.
We use a plastic recycling service which comes to our nursery on a regular basis to pick up any of our waste plastics. This company processes all our used plastics for recycling.
We work with a pot supplier who is an industry leader in recycling of plastics for use in the horticultural industry. You can learn more about the process here.
Additionally, our stockists, such as Gardenworld are also key in helping end consumers recycle their plastic pots with their recycling program.
