Working towards a greener future for all

Here at Jiffy we want to reduce our impact on the environment. Above all, though, we want to support our customers in finding and using sustainable plant growing solutions that protect plants, people, profit, and planet! Our Sustainability Team, our Innovation Team, in fact everyone in our global organization, is working hard to achieve these goals. 

Huge range of eco-friendly solutions available

Did you know we first started offering our plastic-free, compostable Jiffy Pot Original back in the 1960s? Tried and tested, the pot is now available in a huge range of sizes. Many of them are specifically designed for automated sowing and transplanting systems. Our sustainable plant growing solutions also include biodegradable growblocks and pellets. Just look out for the sustainability icon on our product pages and in our leaflets.

Working to meet your sustainability needs

But Jiffy offers far more than just products. We are always happy to share our expertise, give technical advice, and answer your sustainability related questions. About Jiffy growing media, sure, but our know-how goes way beyond that. What are the most sustainable plant propagation systems? How do you start seeds or cuttings without fossil plastic? What are non-plastic alternatives for the nursery? Got a question of your own? Please reach out to us. We’ll work with you to find solutions that align with your sustainability priorities.
