Sustainability

Our Initiatives

We are committed to increasing the sustainability of our products, packaging and manufacturing processes. Furthermore, we are pledging to develop sustainable practices involving product development and operational activities. As well as helping gardeners to enjoy their garden in a more sustainable way with our innovative product solutions. Therefore, our pledge will be driven by three key areas: renew, recycle, and reuse.

Renew Reuse Recycle

To make our products last longer – Buy Best, Buy Once.

At Hozelock, we pride ourselves on designing products that stand the test of time. Designed to last, we offer guarantees lasting up to 30 years.

Hozelock products will be your watering partner for years to come.

To make reusable products made from multi-use plastics.

By using renewable and reusable multi-use plastics, Hozelock will continue to take steps towards a more sustainable future by manufacturing eco-friendly products.

When a Hozelock product finally reaches “end of life”, it can be taken to an appropriate recycling plant.

To provide spares and replacement parts.

Our Spare Parts Website, includes an array of spares and accessories for our current and obsolete products.

You can repair your product when tired or damaged, saving you money and providing a long-lasting, eco-friendly solution.

RECYCLE

To source and deliver initiatives to use and produce recyclable packaging.

Hozelock knows the importance of using recyclable packaging. Initiatives have and continue to be made to source packaging that can be easily recycled at home. By using recycled materials within our packaging, we can reduce our carbon footprint.

This means it is also far easier for the end user to recycle.

To reduce emissions and the weight of packaging used.

We are committed to finding the right balance to minimise the weight and type of materials used, without compromising on quality. The lighter weight packaging will reduce the volume of fuel required for shipping and help decrease Hozelock’s carbon footprint.

By making changes to the sizing and materials in our packaging, we can continue the path towards a more sustainable future.

To use compostable packaging in all our products, where possible.

Our Superhoze packaging is now 100% recyclable and compostable, saving more than 94 tonnes of plastic waste. Many upcoming product launches include recyclable and compostable packaging, making it easier for the user to reuse or recycle.

We aim to implement these initiatives to all our products, where possible.

REUSE

To source materials and launch initiatives to recycle products that have reached “end of life”.

Hozelock aims to research and introduce initiatives to reuse products that have reached their “end of life”.

Our strategy is to reuse materials from these products, to make new.

We are proud that our knitted hose range will be made from 40% recycled PVC.

We have developed our inhouse recycling capabilities to allow old PVC hoses to be collected, recycled, and made into new; without compromising on quality or performance.

To include recycled materials, where possible, in the manufacturing process.

We will continue to research and test new ways of using recycled materials in the manufacturing of Hozelock products, without altering the quality and durability.
