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 is committed to various wildlife programmes.

Our Commitment.

To become truly carbon neutral with the conversion to 100% renewable energy.
To continue to capture as much rain water as possible.
To recycle and reuse our waste products.
To keep our carbon miles to a minimum through our own production and local sourcing of our plants.
To continue to encourage wildlife planting and homing in our customers gardens.
To educate children of the importance of the environment, its protection and preservation.
Not to use harmful chemicals in our production process and not to allow any hazardous materials to leech into the ground.
To increase our visitors awareness of our eco credentials, therefore encouraging them to be more eco-friendly.

Going Peat Free ?

Just a thought on the peat free compost revolution.

Firstly it should be stated that the mining or removal of vast areas of peat from the ground for whatever purpose is obviously going to have an affect on the ecosystems reliant upon it and as an absorber of carbon dioxide, will inevitably have an effect on global temperatures and therefore is undeniably a contributor to climate change.

The good old British media (or parts of it) were very quick to jump on this issue and to blame the Garden Centre trade for the destruction of the planet, the RHS have declared (under pressure from said press) that they will be peat free by 2025 and has called for the rest of us to follow suit.

But before you condemn us, consider this…

The vast majority of farmed peat is burned for heating and generating electricity, domestically and commercially, but we don’t do that.

Horticulture uses 0.0005% of world peat reserves (data from the International Peat Society). Now that figure on it's own does not excuse us from an impact on climate change, let's be honest we're all contributing to climate change in some way. There is however, more to consider.

The peat we are responsible for is not burnt in to a cloud of planet killing vapour. We (and you) put our peat back in the ground from whence it came. Then we plant stuff in it. The stuff we plant in it grows in to little carbon sucking miracles called plants. If we nurture enough of these little plants, they turn in to bigger plants and every minute of every day they are absorbing more and more nasty carbon from the atmosphere. Pretty cool really, the very substance we are told not to use because we killing the planet is actually helping us to preserve it.

So please, if you're concerned and think that even the tiniest amount of peat used in a "regular" bag of compost is in someway contributing to irreversible climate change, buy peat free compost. But maybe the plants you grow in the old fashioned moisture retaining nutrient rich compost will outweigh the effect of farming the tiny bit of peat it contains.

Food for thought. And there's a thought; you can grow food in it too...
