Spear & Jackson: Sustainable solutions


The sustainability agenda is set to remain one of the key challenges for the garden industry in 2024. Having made great progress transitioning to more sustainable packaging, with over 8 tonnes of plastic already removed from their supply chain, Spear & Jackson is now focusing on the sustainability of their tools. For spring 2024 S&J is introducing a range of sustainable products to their established Kew Gardens Collection.


Kew Eco-Kind Gloves

These new gloves are made with recycled polyester, each pair uses at least one recycled 500ml plastic bottle. The sustainable manufacturing process conserves 8-16ml of oil and 14-28g of CO2 compared to standard gloves production. Once they reach the end of their working life, the Eco-Kind gloves will biodegrade up to 40 times faster than typical landfill.

• Suitable for light-duty gardening jobs

• Flexible and comfortable with diamond embossed nitrile palms for a secure grip

• Available in small, medium, and large sizes

• Recycled Polyester backs with a water-resistant coating that is effective for up to five washes at 30°C.

• Competitively priced at £5.99.


Kew Woodland Collection

Also new for 2024 is the Kew Woodland Collection of cutting tools comprising Secateurs, Loppers and Hedge Shears. Developed with a traditional rustic look, all have sustainably sourced weatherproofed FSC® ash wood handles that are both comfortable to hold and warmer to the touch in colder weather.


Secateurs RRP £22.99

• Bypass cutting action, ideal for pruning live stems, twigs and branches up to 15mm

• Drop-forged carbon steel blades for enhanced strength and durability

• Weatherproofed, contoured, FSC® ash wood handles

• Traditional wire hook locking catch for safe carrying and storage


Loppers RRP £49.99

• Bypass action for cutting live branches up to 30mm

• Hardened carbon steel blades for lasting sharpness

• PTFE coated upper blade delivers a smoother cut and greater resistance to rust

• Weatherproofed, FSC® ash wood handles

• Rubber shock absorbers help to reduce any jarring of hands and wrists for more comfortable pruning


Hedge Shears RRP - £39.99

• Ideal for tidying and shaping shrubs, hedges and grass

• 8” (200mm) carbon steel blades for lasting sharpness

• Weatherproofed FSC® ash wood handles

• Rubber shock absorbers help to reduce any jarring of hands and wrists for more comfortable pruning


All the new products are tested and fully endorsed by the Horticultural Team at Kew giving confidence in their quality and performance, upholding Spear & Jackson products reputation as ‘The Tools to Trust’.
