3. Planting Trees & Shrubs
All Plants remove Co2 from the air and convert it into oxygen. Generally the bigger the plant the more Co2 it absorbs. We like to call them carbon eaters. Planting plants and trees, results in you providing your own gas guzzlers, the more you can plant the more you will be reducing your carbon footprint. Oh and they are also nice to look at too.
4. Buy Houseplants as a Gift Rather Than Flowers
Houseplants filter pollutants from the air making it cleaner to breathe, they also last longer and generally cost less! We can also gift wrap houseplants.
5. Use a Water Butt
Try collecting rain water from your house's drain pipes. Store it in a water butt and use it to water your garden during dry spells – this could also help you save money off your water bill.
6. Biodegradeable Carrier Bags
All-In-One uses carrier bags manufactured to the highest envoronmentally friendly standards. Our plastic bags now have added chalk which reduces the amount of polythene needed plus a biodegradable additive to give full break down in 18 months.
PLEASE help us reduce the amount of plastic bags we give out by using the spare trays and boxes at the till points rather than taking plastic bags or use your plastic bag again and again. Watch out for our new reusable boot liners and “Plant for Life” bags.
