Sustainability

Our Journey so Far  

In 2018, we took a leap forward when we developed the world’s first biodegradable floral foam, OASIS® Bio Floral Foam Maxlife.

Since then, our R&D teams have continued to work on developing the most sustainable solutions possible for the industry.

We have some exciting new product developments and sustainability initiatives coming soon - so watch this space!

The Big Green Plan

We have been quietly working away behind the scenes on sustainability for many years; after doing our research and training our team, in 2021 we launched The Big Green Plan.

Six months into the five-year plan and we are really pleased to have made some fantastic progress already on our goals.

By converting 88 of our products with plastic components to new recycled and recyclable plastic, we’ve already reached 51% of products being recyclable and in the last six months have used 52% less virgin plastic by volume.

 

 

 

In October 2021 we began a new partnership with ACM Waste Management. With their help we are now on track to achieve zero waste to landfill. We’re thrilled to be able to achieve this in year one of The Big Green Plan, ahead of our 2025 target.

 

 

In the last six months we’ve held two sustainability talks via video call, which were attended by florists and floristry tutors from around the UK. We have more events planned too so stay tuned!
