Speaking of green, Green Thumb Garden Centre was awarded first prize in the Canadian-wide “Green for Life” program (sharing the honour with a garden centre in Baltimore, Ontario). The November Horticulture Review (our Landscape Ontario publication) summarizes well the award and its importance:
[The award] was created to promote, recognize and reward environmentally responsible retailers and growers in the horticulture and floriculture industries. [The winners] are great examples of the positive shift in the industry toward better environmental stewardship… All of the companies clearly demonstrated what it means to be environmentally responsible in their industry and will hopefully set the standards for others to follow.
We are obviously very proud of our award, and we will continue to improve in this area. We’ve included some of our green tips below.
