We have just launched the ‘Say No to Plastic Grass & Plants’ campaign with support from the RHS and the Landscape Institute to raise awareness of the huge environmental damage these products cause and to debunk the claims that they are harmless.
Not only are plastic grass & plants destroying our wildlife by removing crucial natural habitats; they also cause plastic pollution, leak microplastics into waterways, cause flooding, contribute to urban heat islands due to the amount of warmth they retain and contribute to greenhouse gas emissions in their production.
Join us to help debunk the claims made by manufacturers that these products are harmless and encourage everyone to use beautiful, natural solutions instead.
Visit the capaign page on SGD website for more information and a downloadable leaflet with advice on the many sustainable alternatives we should be using instead. www.sgd.org.uk or follow the link in our bio.
Please show your support for the campaign by reposting our social media posts or downloading the campaign banner from the SGD website. Thank you.
