hour planet and B&Q

We are backing award-winning environmental charity BioRegional's global One Planet Living® programme, designed to reduce the impact
we're all having on the world's natural resources
- and it's the challenge of our time.

why do we care?

One Planet HomeAs part of the programme, we sell an extensive range of One Planet Home® accredited products that can help you manage the environmental impact of your home.

Every product is independently assessed by sustainability experts at BioRegional to check it has strong environmental credentials - and the range is being expanded and developed continuously.

BioRegional assesses whether the product has good overall environmental credentials compared to other alternatives available. This can include the nature of materials used in manufacture, embodied carbon and country of origin.

Finally, BioRegional assesses whether the product has been sourced responsibly. This is done via our environmental management system QUEST which assesses vendors, examining a number of ethical, quality and environmental factors.

This includes:

  • packaging and labelling
  • supply chain transparency
  • environmental track record
  • environmental policy and awareness
  • product integrity

One Planet Home® products have to perform well in one of the following six areas:

Send less waste to landfill by recycling and by choosing products made from recycled or waste materials. Including compost bins and doormats made from recycled car tyres.

Growing your own vegetables, fruit and herbs is a great way to beat rising bills and to reduce the environmental impact of our food. Products include vegetable seeds and propagators.

Reduce exposure to pollutants in your home. Products include paints with minimal levels of VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and the Method and Ecover cleaning ranges.

Use energy more efficiently to save money and help to tackle climate change. Products include insulation, clothes lines and energy saving light bulbs.

Did you know, on average, each of us uses about 155 litres of water every day? That's 30% more than in 1970. Save Water products include water butts, aerating showerheads and low flush toilets.

If we want nature to thrive, we should do whatever we can to protect it - whether that's in our own gardens or globally.
