Recycling For A Greener Future

06 Sep, 2022

Over the last few years, we've introduced many new initiatives to lessen our impact on the planet. Here are a few things you can do this spring to help us on our journey towards a greener future.

Swap-a-Pot recycling bins

At each Kings store you'll find a Swap-a-Pot station for our customers to return and take used plastic pots and punnets. We encourage you to take as many pots as you need for planting, repotting, seed sowing, or even crafts! By reusing these pots over and over, you'll be helping to keep this plastic from unnecessary recycling.

Plant Label Recycling

Attached to our swap-a-pot bin is a wooden box. Almost all plant tags (even our long tree labels) can be put into these boxes for recycling. Together with our label partners Orion, we send them to a New Zealand factory who chip, process, and recycle the labels into plastic mouldings which are used in construction.

Soft Plastic Recycling

Introducing our newest recycling initiative in partnership with FuturePost. This spring, every Kings store will have a soft plastics collection bin for our customers to return any garden mix or fertiliser soft packaging for products purchased instore.
