Marshalls plc has called upon the hard landscaping and gardening industry, to help halt the greenwash.
The company has produced a new guide aimed at businesses and professionals in the industry. The ‘Halt the Greenwash’ guide aims to increase awareness of false eco and ethical pledges and provide information on how to spot and stop greenwashing.
"More and more we are hearing the term ‘greenwash’ when companies rush to parade their green credentials without being able to ensure their supply chain integrity and environmental performance," says Chris Harrop, group marketing director at Marshalls.
"Over the past 12 months, greenwashing has become increasingly apparent in the landscaping industry. Greenwash undermines trust, spreads cynicism and perpetuates myths. If people are to make the right buying decisions, they must have the right information."
