Sustainable Bulb Suppliers Pave the Path

Sustainable Bulb Suppliers Pave the Path


Every little thing we do, every action we take, leaves its own unique mark, kind of like a cheerful ripple effect through the community, industry, and the environment for generations to come. Now, we're not claiming to have it all figured out – we're all a bit like masterpieces in progress- but here at TASC, we make every effort to be mindful of our impact on the world and strive for improvement wherever we can. From fine-tuning and optimizing our supply chain to proudly teaming up with Sustainable Bulb Suppliers, we're on a mission to spread the love for nature. Because why not make the world a better place, one bulb at a time?


Our long-standing bulb and perennial partners, from the Netherlands, are card-carrying members of the coolest club in town – the Sustainable Suppliers of Horticulture Quality Products! These industry pioneers are on a mission: by 2024, they're set to deliver fully sustainable products to consumers that meet a whole list of objectives covering everything from strict environmental practices, ensure exceptional product quality and the well-being of the workers that make it all happen.

But that's not all – these suppliers are part of the Floriculture Sustainability Initiative (FSI), where industry partners work together to strengthen the horticultural industry. They prioritize transparency, shrinking their environmental footprint, fostering innovation and knowledge development, and proactively complying with future EU laws, like the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD).


Oh, and they've got six worthy goals to make the planet and your garden a happier:


Commissioned by the foundation, Researchers from Wageningen University & Research (WUR) updated a carbon footprint model for flower bulbs and perennials, aiding future carbon reduction efforts. The foundation targets 100% green energy by 2024 via solar panels and sustainable energy purchases.
