Using recycled material Westlands grow their micro leaves in recycled fabric offcuts instead of soil. Not only does this save on waste, but the offcuts also provide a fantastic home for the leaves as they grow.
They use a minimal amount of pesticides in their growing processes. As members of LEAF Marque (Linking the Environment and Farming), they use an Integrated Crop Management strategy throughout their growing sites, which involves introducing beneficial predatory insects and mites to help control pests.
Their Integrated Farm Management (IFM) strategy includes rainwater capture, recycling of irrigation water, increased energy efficiency, use of biological controls, composting waste, packaging recycling and tree planting.
