  • Recognizing our vendors and product suppliers who use environmentally responsible practices
  • Ensuring that our environmental objectives support our fiscal goals
  • Monitoring, measuring and communicating the progress of each task

OUR INITIATIVES
  • Coco-fibre discs have been added to every container-grown plant produced at our farms to reduce moisture loss by up to 30%.
  • A 117 million litre  (covering an area of 1.4 hectares) water recapture pond collects rainwater and water runoff from operations and naturally filters it through a series of settling ponds reducing our water draw from local sources by approximately 24%.
  • Drip irrigation has replaced sprinklers & broadcast watering reducing water consumption by up to 80%.
  • Our garden centers carry a wide selection of organic pest control, fertilizer and garden care products
  • Replacing single use plastic bags and trunk liners with recyclable paper by end of 2022.
  • Plastic pot, tray and tag recycling program.
  • Replaced plastic plant tags on Sheridan Nurseries branded annuals with pot stickers, reducing the number of plastic tags we use by over 500,000 each year.
