Environmental Commitments

Going Above & Beyond



As stewards of the Earth, both in thought and practice, we believe serving the community with an unparalleled selection of nursery and home décor items should not come at the price of the environment. We’ve adopted a green approach to running our business, demonstrating our commitment to the environment and allow us to become a “green” gardening leader.

Our comprehensive sustainability programs range from how we generate and use our energy sources, to how we manage our water use. We take pride in implementing an active approach to preserving California’s environment and positively influencing the green habits of our loyal customers.


We conserve energy with the use of LED products, skylights and programmable timers to reduce electricity consumption from lighting by 35%. We are celebrating our 12th year of not selling synthetic fertilizers, insecticides and other garden products. We are organic. Join us!
We do not use plastic bags, plastic trunk liners or similar items – and never have. We don’t sell invasive plants. We are the only Orange County member of PlantRight, a voluntary effort to remove invasive plants from horticulture.
We LOVE to Reuse and Recycle your empty plastic plant containers. Bring them back to us, and keep them out of the waste stream. Our entire store landscape has been converted to low-water, California Friendly®. We have almost zero-runoff thanks to high efficiency, low runoff irrigation equipment and design.
We only use green cleaning supplies. We support and make donations to environmental causes, including The Orange County Chapter of The CA Native Plant Society and The Sea & Sage OC Chapter of the National Audubon Society.
We do not sell any GMO plant. Roger’s Gardens staff are either directors or advisors to several environmental organizations including The Orange County Chapter of The CA Native Plant Society, PlantRight, the CA Invasive Plant Council, the UC Urban IPM program and the Upper Newport Bay Big Canyon Restoration.


Our community outreach and education programs allow us to promote the use of natural, sustainable, and non-chemical approaches, and our California Friendly Gardening® Contest encourages customers to conserve and protect our natural resources.

Reuse Your Plastic Plant Containers!

Roger’s Gardens believes in reducing single use plastic in the retail Nursery & Garden Center industry. To encourage and incentivize our customers to return their plastic plant containers for reuse, Roger’s Gardens will contribute a small donation to an environmental stewardship organization for each plastic container returned.

We have partnered with the Surfrider Foundation and their Rise Above Plastics campaign. Rise Above Plastics is designed to eliminate the impacts of plastics in the marine environment by raising awareness about the dangers of plastic pollution and by advocating for a reduction of single-use plastics and the recycling of all plastics.

Donations are made by the size of the returned plastic pot:
• 1-3 Gallons: 25 cent per pot.
• 5-10 Gallons: 50 cent per pot.
• 15+ gallon: $1.00 per pot.
