Why Rocky Point
Because we are committed to making the earth better!
Everything we do is aimed to make the earth we live on, and the earth we cultivate, better for this and future generations.
We believe in building a community of avid and occasional gardeners focused on raising awareness and use of healthy, sustainable growing practices.
Since our humble beginnings as sugar cane farmers in 1949, our brand has grown with five separate divisions across multiple growth industries.
Rocky Point’s Better Earth initiatives
Rocky Point’s commitment to making waste work is evidenced by our work with local councils for whom we are recycling food and green waste to produce what could be considered Australia’s “cleanest” compost.
Rocky Points also works collaboratively with a diverse range of industries to minimise landfill, a growing threat to the environment here in Australia and beyond.
By recycling industrial by-products such as waste timber into “better earth garden products” Rocky Point is minimising waste and nurturing our natural environment.
Rock Point’s on-site soft plastic recycling and a pledge to have 45% of our packaging and made from recycled plastics, is another simple yet important contribution to sustainability.
Here at Rocky Point we only accept supplies from trusted farmers with a reputation for environmentally, sustainable growing practices.
Up to 30% recycled plastic in our packaging bag range and we are working with suppliers to get this to 45% recycled plastics.
RP also do on-site soft plastic recycling of waste – a better earth initiative by Rocky Point.
As experts in green gardening, Rocky Point is committed to sharing our knowledge with every Australian gardener, irrespective of how green their thumbs might be!
Initiatives such as our ‘How green is your garden?’ quiz, our downloadable tips and tricks, our gardening club programs, and school donations, are just some ways in which we help promote greener gardening practices.
When it comes to making the earth better we’re all in the same boat – we all want a future in which caring for our environment comes first.
Rocky Point’s forum on the Same Boat platform is a place where anyone interested in, or concerned about, sustainability can talk to others in the same boat.
By talking to others in the same boat we can share ideas and work towards a cleaner, greener future.
