RHS Hampton Court Palace 2013 | GOLD MEDAL & BEST IN SHOW
Posted on 20th June 2013
In 2013 we were back at The RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower show with a show garden for Ecover. The garden was awarded a gold medal and ‘Best in Show’.
The inspiration for The Ecover Garden is the fundamental principle that water is life. We depend upon our aquatic environments, but they are under threat from pollution, including waste plastic and toxic residues. The Ecover garden is all about solutions and symbolises numerous ways in which Ecover’s products are sustainable and can aid the recovery of these water systems.
The movement and colour of water is represented by the planting, which meanders around a gravel path and monolithic walls inspired by coastal cliffs and river gorges. Strips of recycled plastic and drifts of magenta flowers weave their way through the garden in harmony with the other elements. They represent Ecover’s pioneering spirit in the field of sustainability, using plant-based ingredients and recycled plastic for their products and packaging. The toilet cleaner fountain, bottle handle bench and laundry cap lamp emphasise the role Ecover’s products play in making a sustainable lifestyle an easy choice for their customers.
