Solar energy is a free and renewable energy source that is available in abundance. By utilising solar energy we are able to cut down our use of non-renewable energy and reduce the impact of our carbon foorprint.
Currently we are trying to make the switch to greener and energy efiicient lighting. It is our goal to light 100% of the garden centre with LED lights and we are well on the way!
By 2024 the garden centre industry will no longer allowed to sell compost containing peat. Peat is a natural mineral rich resource that acts as a vital filter for carbon in the environment as well as being home to many species of micro-organism. Traditionally peat has been used in compost to help plants grow with its rich nutrients. Busy Bee has been gradually adding peat-free alternatives to our range and in 2024 will be fully peat free.
