As demand for environmentally friendly gardening products continues to soar, Woodlodge, the UK’s leading supplier of pots and containers, will unveil its new collection of eco-friendly bamboo pots at Glee (NEC Birmingham, 10th – 12th September). Every pot in the innovative new range is made from eco-friendly bamboo.
With more consumers seeking alternatives to plastic, Woodlodge’s new bamboo pottery range will offer sustainable choices that are kinder to the environment. The collection is poised to become the go-to range for the UK’s growing band of eco-conscious consumers, while bamboo pots have the added advantage of being super lightweight, too.
Featuring square and round pots in natural shades as well as grey and black, the eco-friendly range will cater for the rising demand for fashionable, modern containers. Now, retailers will have a solution that blends contemporary style with genuine sustainability.
A percentage of sales of the new eco-friendly range will go directly to Cool Earth – a charity that works alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation and its contribution to climate change. The conservation charity says that over half the world’s rainforest has been destroyed over the past 40 years and continues to be lost at a faster rate than ever. That’s why a ground-up approach, supporting local communities needs to be the way forward.
Cool Earth works across six rainforest nations to protect 99,162 hectares of forest, storing approximately 15,679,250 tonnes of climate-changing carbon in trees’ roots, trunks and soils.
Michael Wooldridge, Managing Director at Woodlodge, said: “Sustainable gardening is a key growth area for retailers nationwide. With our range in support of Cool Earth, Woodlodge is bringing to market an innovative range that delivers a truly eco-friendly option for consumers who want to play a role in protecting the planet. The use of environmentally friendly bamboo raises the bar for pots and containers, offering a sustainable option for shoppers who are seeking alternatives to plastic without compromising on quality or style.
“We are proud to be supporting the work of Cool Earth, a charity with an exceptional track record of changing the fate of at-risk rainforest, and protecting threatened regions of the planet for future generations,” Michael added.
Pots in Woodlodge’s new eco-friendly bamboo line-up have RRPs from £12.99 to £39.99, with sizes ranging from 25x17cm to 30x21cm for round pots, while square pots will be offered ranging from 23x25cm to 29x30cm. Point of sale material will highlight the range’s green credentials to appeal to eco-savvy shoppers.
To see the brand new eco-friendly bamboo range for the first time, buyers should visit the Woodlodge exhibition space at Glee (stand 6S30-T31) on 10th – 12th September.
