Global Recycling Day 2024


There is no doubt recycling is on the front line in the war to save the future of our planet and humanity.

The theme of Global Recycling Day 2024 is #RecyclingHeroes. This will recognise the people, places and activities that showcase what an important role recycling plays in contributing to an environmentally stable planet and a greener future which will benefit all.

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 Global Recycling Day 2024; 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 a collection point 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 drop them in the special bin at the west entrance to Lifestyle Home Garden or, if need be, hand them in at the 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.
