Did you know?
At Early Hours, our commitment to sustainability is interwoven into the very fabric of our business. With each installation, we promise not only beauty but also a commitment to a brighter, greener, and more sustainable tomorrow. We pride ourselves in our eco-conscious approach:
- Bio Fuel from Organic Waste: Instead of contributing to landfill, all our organic waste gets transformed into biofuel, showcasing our dedication to environment-friendly disposal methods.
- Compostable Materials: We proactively avoid non-compostable materials and source alternatives where possible.
- Recycling and Reusing Packaging: Our flower buckets and delivery boxes are continually reused, we return them back to our suppliers to minimize waste. All packaging from our deliveries is recycled.
- Associations and Products: We uphold sustainability standards across the board, whether it’s partnering with the soil association or simply using probiotic cleaning products.
- Water Conservation: We ensure our water usage is kept to a minimum through careful monitoring and measuring in order to conserve this precious resource.
- Electrifying Deliveries: We’re on a mission to make a significant change to air pollution. By 2025, we aim for 100% of our weekly flower deliveries to be made using electric vehicles.
- Repurposing for Sustainability: We are proud to reuse and repurpose 75% of the materials in our installations. Even if it means narrower profit margins, our priority lies in reducing landfill waste.
- People and Community: Our dedication doesn’t end with the environment. The team actively participate in community volunteer days and we support nonprofit London flower farms. We believe in nurturing not only nature but also people.
- Local and Responsible Sourcing: We champion the use of London-grown and UK flowers. Whenever seasonally available, we ensure our flowers are UK-sourced. When importing becomes a necessity, we partner only with suppliers who share our vision of sustainability and environmental responsibility.
- Sustainability Accreditation: We are working with Sustainability Accreditation Organisations to ensure we are continually reviewing and enhancing every aspect of our business to have minimal environmental impact.
