Ruxley Manor is more than just a garden centre. It’s a destination for the local community, a meeting place for families and friends, an event venue for entertainment, a place for a hearty meal or a slice of cake and a coffee.
Ruxley Manor is making a conscious effort to reduce its environmental impact where possible and support the local community. Sustainability is more than just an environmental issue at Ruxley. The garden centre is integrating sustainability into its operations and investing in a brighter future.
In this crucial Decade of Action, the company wants to ensure that they are a force for good: positively transforming society and the planet by measuring its own impact on the environment. Over the next year, the company will be working towards reducing its carbon emissions and sharing its journey with the community. It also wants to increase societal contributions. Ruxley currently supports a local chosen charity, as well as run competitions for local residents, schools and businesses.
Through Planet Mark, the company has protected an area of endangered rainforest thanks to Cool Earth; a charity working alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation. Its pledge through Cool Earth goes directly towards supporting the Asháninka community in Central Peru.
The company has also helped the Eden Project – an educational charity building connections with each other and the living world, exploring how we can work together towards a better future. Ruxley Manor looks forward to sharing its sustainability achievements with the wider community.
As part of the Planet Mark certification, Ruxley Manor has committed to making a year-on-year reduction.
