You love & enjoy your colourful garden. But did you know that secretly, parts of these tropical plants travel to the forest - sticking to our shoes, our tyres & our gear? And often … plant waste is being dumped in nature. No big deal, you might think. But some of these plants turn out to be invasive alien species: they overgrow or disturb the existing wildlife. The healthy ecosystem of the forest is gone, and so are the benefits for all of us.

You can help protect our precious forests by choosing your garden plants wisely & by disposing of your plant waste responsibly. The forest thanks you!
