Introducing Nature Safe – the new range of 100% organic plant and lawn feeds from Hygeia
There is no doubt that organic gardening is growing in popularity. Where chemical based solutions once dominated, there is now a clear and distinct shift towards a need and want for greener solutions. The obvious driver of this has been the rise of Grow-Your-Own as consumers look to reduce their food miles and take responsibility for the impact their diet has upon the environment. However, a new revolution is taking over – veganism – which is seeing green and organic product rangesbenefiting from exponential growth.
It is estimated that there are now 3.5million vegans in the UK (*Comparethemarket, 2018). Similarly, The Guardian reported in 2018 that one in eight of the population now identifies as vegan or vegetarian. According to The Vegan Society, in 2018, the UK launched more vegan products than any other nation.
