We take care to keep our carbon footprint at a minimum.

We also ensure that we reduce any waste to an absolute minimum.

Measures that we take include.

  • Using shared transport from the EU so the Lorries are always full and not delivering small loads.

  • This helps keep transport movements to a minimum.

  • We only receive flowers in returnable and re-usable plastic containers.

  • This means we have zero cardboard waste and zero packaging waste.

  • Any cardboard boxes we do receive are collected from our clients and re used many times.

  • Because we only work and supply to order we have zero waste on our products.

  • We are proud to say we throw away nothing, as we never have any un sold stock.

  • We also source as many British flowers and plants as possible thus reducing unnecessary transport miles.

  • We also source flowers packed in bio degradable wraps and keep plastic waste to the absolute  minimum.

  • Smith & Green are also supporters of fair trade flowers.

  • We buy as much as possible from Africa and Ecuador to help support poorer economies.
