At the heart of Greener Gardening

Find out what systems we have in place, on a day-to-day basis within the Company to make sure we do our bit, now matter how small, for the Planet

Sustainable products

Here at Heart of Eden, we understand the need to supply environmentally sustainable, peat-free and recycled products. But what do we actually have in place, on a day-to-day basis within the Company to make sure we do our bit, no matter how small, for the Planet?

Sustainable sources

Raw materials are sourced as close to use as possible, which minimises our carbon miles. Any virgin wood used comes from sustainable sources, which are generally certified forestry plantations. These forests are managed like any other crop, albeit the process is longer-term. It takes over 20 years for trees to be ready for production to begin, but 30 to 50 years for the trees to fully mature. Nothing is wasted from these trees, which ensures that it is not only efficient, but also environmentally-friendly.

Reducing our carbon footprint

As well as our ISO accreditation, we are proud to say that we are part of the United Nations’ #DecadeofAction campaign and are measuring our own carbon footprint. Please read our Latest News piece on achieving the PlanetMark year 2021 Business Certification for more information.

We believe that every one of us making a small change can have a positive impact on the environment and the sustainability of natural resources for generations to come.
