Green Retail World goes to Notcutts

Video: Notcutts Garden Centres’ plastic flower pot recycling scheme

Green Retail World’s latest retail destination visit to check out greener retailing practices ‘in the field’, involved a trip to Notcutts Garden Centres.

There have been several garden centre eco initiatives covered by the Green Retail World this year, including Dobbies’ partnership with the Netherlands-based pot maker elho.

Fellow garden centre chain Notcutts, meanwhile, has a new sustainability manager in place, and is rolling out several programmes to improve its carbon footprint.

Waste management, water usage, biodiversity projects, and boosting staff’s environmental awareness are all part of the work going on at the retailer.

Check out this short video to hear editor Ben Sillitoe’s thoughts on the experience of recycling pots at Notcutts, and to see what the process entails.
