The Environment

We’re on a mission to be the first plastic free florist and are committed to managing our environmental impact beyond legal and regulatory requirements.

Here's where we've got to so far.....

Our packaging

  • We use compostable eco paper tape instead of plastic sticky tape
  • Gardenia branded ribbon is made from 100% recycled used plastic bottles (and can be returned to us for re-use)
  • We use home compostable handtie bags (including 100% cotton handles)
  • We use Nutscene natural twine, which is home compostable and made by traditional methods in Scotland.
  • Our real rubber bands made from sustainable and renewable resources and are home compostable
  • We use home compostable sleeves made from FSC-certified paper to wrap flowers for display in pavement buckets, instead of plastic sleeves.
  • Our gel packs (with a green leaf symbol) are made from recycled resources and, in turn, are recyclable
  • Our signature wrapping paper is manufactured in the UK, made from FSC certified paper and is home compostable
  • From November 2021, we will be using Nature Flex film sheets instead of plastic sheets, these are 100% home compostable and are manufactured in the UK.

  • 100% of our waste is recycled (zero to landfill)
