Our partnership with Friends of the Earth

Working together to bring back nature.

Supporting Friends of the Earth's mission

The UK is now one of the most nature-depleted nations in the world. That’s why we’re partnering with Friends of the Earth, working together to green neighbourhoods across the country.

Our partnership with Friends of the Earth

Restoring greenery and wildlife across the country

We’ve joined forces with Friends of the Earth to bring back nature. We’re helping to restore greenery and wildlife in over 1,000 nature-deprived spaces across the country through the Postcode Gardener programme.

Protecting the natural world has been at the heart of our unique, customer-led Ethical Policy for over 30 years and we’re driven by our customers’ concerns for biodiversity and the environment.

The UK is now one of the most nature-depleted nations in the world. This is devastating for our ecosystems, and has a very real impact on people’s mental and physical health. Nature-deprived areas are the most affected by urban heating, pollution, flooding and biodiversity loss.

Greening neighbourhoods with Postcode Gardeners

We know that many people want to live on streets thriving with greenery and wildlife, but they need help to make it happen. We’re supporting Postcode Gardeners and the powerful combination of gardening and community organising that they offer.

Postcode Gardeners are professional gardeners who guide, organise and support local people. They help them to connect with each other and work together to make greenery and wildlife flourish in the local area. They do this by:

  • Planting wildflowers and edible plants
  • Creating wildlife corridors between properties
  • Building planters to line walkways.

These are just a few examples of what Postcode Gardeners do, working street-by-street to green neighbourhoods. And in the process, local communities feel the benefits from:

  • Building social connection
  • Improving their mental and physical wellbeing
  • Creating resilient, thriving and healthy neighbourhoods.
