When it rains, all the rainwater is collected and that is more than enough to water the plants all year round. No water is wasted.
After use, the remaining water is collected and filtered again to be reused.
No chemicals are used around the nursery. Grounding is hoeed and mown instead of sprayed.
Pests in the nursery are largely controlled by natural enemies and good climate control.
The peat from the potting soil that is used does not come from nature reserves and consists largely of coconut fibres.
The use of fertilisers is also reduced to a minimum. The plant doesn’t really need fertilisers because the nut itself already contains enough nutrition.
90% of all waste produced by the nursery is recycled. Everything is separated. Organic material (soil and plant residues) is separated and removed for composting. Wood, paper, cardboard and plastic are reused or separated and processed into new material.
The coconuts we make plants from, arrive by boat from Costa Rica.
In the nursery we do not create air pollution but air purification, as our plants absorb CO2 from the air and convert it into oxygen.
Furthermore, we do not use natural gas or other fossil fuels.
