Recognized as one of Canada's Greenest Employers (2017)

Here are some of the reasons why Sheridan Nurseries Limited was selected as one of Canada's Greenest Employers (2017):

  • Sheridan Nurseries is a good example of an organization that is tackling the impacts of its operations directly through its large pot recycling program -- the program includes the goal of ensuring the return and reuse of 50 percent of the larger pots sold (in 2015 this number was 25 percent) -- the company also takes back all smaller pots for recycling since many municipal programs do not accept these containers
  • Noting its "green-thumb" line of business, Sheridan Nurseries is uniquely positioned to offer educational programs to the wider community including the "Growing-up Green" school outreach program, which makes donations from products sold to local schools for the purchase of plantings to help "green" school yards
  • Sheridan Nurseries manages a massive water recapture pond to collect rainwater and water run-off from its operations -- covering an area of 1.4 hectares, the 117 million litre pond naturally filters water through a series of settling ponds and reduced the company's water draw from local sources by approximately 24 percent
