It’s not often that something is offered for free with absolutely no catch. But that is what we are offering here at Amberol.
Have you visited the Amberol website recently? If not, now would be a good time to take a fresh look as we are delighted to announce some changes. In fact, the whole website has had a bit of an exciting makeover to mark the start of a new decade.
With the Great British Spring Clean 2020 officially launched in January, momentum for the annual initiative is starting to build. This year’s event runs from 20th March to 13th April and the aim is to make the 2020 campaign even bigger and better. In 2019, over half a million volunteers were involved in everything from litter picks to individual litter pledges. This year the campaign’s target is to involve at least 600,000 people.
Investing in the built environment costs money. Many of our customers have to balance the benefits of initiatives such as creating floral displays and keeping the streets tidy with shrinking budgets.

One of the many advantages of using containers for planting rather than traditional flower beds is the versatility that containers can offer. Planters can be relocated with relative ease to enhance a specific space or fit in with a particular theme, offering great potential for the imaginative Britain in Bloomer, horticulturalist or gardener.
The development of plastic has revolutionised the manufacturing industry and so many of the products that we use every day. However, the tide of public opinion has recently turned against the use of plastic, due to important and legitimate concerns around its negative impact on the environment.
