At the West Somerset Garden Centre we are conscious of our sustainability responsibilities. We have introduced recycling schemes for most of our waste generated; this includes the recycling of cardboard, paper, plastic, metal and wood. Currently the majority of our waste is recycled and we aim to further improve moving forward. Where possible return any plastic plant carrying trays back to the suppliers for them to reuse or offered to customers for their own use.
We have installed a water capture system collecting rainwater from our gutters which is stored and used to water our plants. We have installed 60 solar panels generating our own electricity helping to cut down our Carbon Footprint.
