Hozelock to introduce knitted hose range made from up to 70% recycled materials
Hozelock’s commitment to increasing the sustainability of its products, packaging and manufacturing processes will see the entire knitted hose range made from up to 70% recycled materials by 2024.
This will be achieved through the construction of the hose layers and swapping to recycled PVC materials.
The knitted hose range, which includes the popular Ultimate, Ultramax and Ultraflex hoses, has been part of Hozelock’s core product range for over 60 years.
Extensive testing has been conducted to ensure this does not compromise on quality or performance for the end user, and the change will remove more than 900 tonnes of virgin PVC material from the range, the equivalent of 45 million plastic bottles.
The enhanced range will be available for garden centre retailers to stock from January 2024.
