Baytree and the Environment

We naturally care about the environment and are committed to its' protection, conservation and the education of our customers. We are dedicated to a ten year plan to make our energy supplies 100% renewable with the introduction of wind and solar power over the next few years. We currently capture rain water from 65% of our roof spaces and plan to increase this in the near future. We grow most of the plants we sell, those we don't we try our utmost to source from local suppliers. All the packaging from our plants and dry goods is recycled. All our waste plant matter is composted or mulched. Our plastic plant pots are reused or recycled and all our carrier bags and other shopping packaging materials are biodegradable. Less than 1% of our waste goes to landfill, we're working on that nasty 1%. We actively promote the planting of wildlife friendly plants and the use of wildlife boxes. Our Owl and Wildlife Centre at Weston is committed to various wildlife programmes.
