Earth Day 2018

EARTH DAY, 22 APRIL 2018

Earth Day 2018 is dedicated to informing and inspiring all people to revise and change their attitude and behavior about plastics.

Plastics are threatening the survival of our planet and ultimately our survival – they are polluting our oceans, beaches and waterways, poisoning and injuring our marine life, spilling over from our landfills and affecting our health.

This Earth Day, 22 April 2018; let’s take a look at how we, as gardeners, can take personal responsibility for our share in plastic pollution and make a point of being more aware of each bit of plastic we use and discard…

In light of this, we at Lifestyle Home Garden have created collection points for your used plastic plant pots.

After purchasing plants from us, or any other nursery, we want to encourage you to recycle the plastic pots and trays within which your new plants are bought.

After transplanting your new plants into your home and garden space; simply rinse the plastic pots or trays, collect them and bring them to our inside information desk.

We will then recycle them in a responsible way! If broken we will recycle the pots and trays into our own recycling bins and if usable we will return these pots or trays to our suppliers to be reused in their production.
