Sustainability

Freaky Cacti is committed to creating a sustainable future one plant at a time. Our nursery and online shop are not just about selling plants; they’re about preserving the environment and promoting sustainable practices. We strive to make a meaningful impact on the environment through our operational practices and our commitment to sustainability doesn’t end with our products, as we’re constantly exploring new ways to reduce our environmental footprint, from optimising our supply chain to implementing energy-efficient practices (such as using recycled materials in our garden and for almost all of our packaging). We believe that every step we take, no matter how small, contributes to a greener world…

Everyone who’s reading this should be well aware by now of the importance of environmental sustainability, so we’ll try not to come across as too preachy. Simply, if you’re not doing what you can to reduce your footprint on the Earth, you probably shouldn’t be on it! At Freaky Cacti, we’re committed to using sustainable and recycled organic materials in our business. We believe in the principle of ‘less is more’ when it comes to our environmental impact, and strive to use the minimum practical quantities of electricity, water, organic fertilisers, packaging, and other consumables to get the job done.

Our ultimate goal is to contribute to the protection and propagation of endangered species through the cultivation and propagation of plants and seeds. We aim to encourage genetic diversity and spread knowledge about these important plants. Moreover, all our seeds and plants are ethically sourced. This means that we don’t trade in any plant material that has been obtained in a disrespectful or unsustainable manner. Furthermore, when buying in stock to augment the range we already grow, we primarily deal with some of the most well-regarded and well-established growers in Europe (and further afield), who have extensive knowledge of their respective areas of botanical expertise.

We are committed to continual improvement in our environmental responsibility policies – our sustainability policy will be updated from time to time to reflect our evolving practices. We hope you will join us in our journey towards a more sustainable future. Together, we can make a difference.
