Chenies Sustainability Information


At Van Hage we are committed to operating each of our three stores with sustainability as a key consideration.

Our main values and efforts at Chenies include...

All wood products used and sold come from certified sustainable sources.

Fresh produce sold and served at Chenies is sourced locally wherever possible.

We encourage the purchase of peat-free and peat-reduced growing media at our garden centres and work with our suppliers to source and promote renewable alternatives.

In association with our coffee supplier and the World Land Trust we aim to save 20 acres of threatened rainforest each year as a company.

Products sold which originate from third world producers will be covered by the Fairtrade guarantee where possible.

We encourage customers to use bags for life or re-use bags. All of our customer bags are biodegradable. Any surplus product packaging is recycled.

We actively promote the use of plants to help create a more healthy and harmonious environment for both humans and animals.
