1. Plant a Tree

Trees are essential in fighting climate change by absorbing carbon dioxide, a major contributor to global warming. Through photosynthesis, they convert CO2 into oxygen while storing away the harmful greenhouse gas in their trunks, branches, and leaves. Planting and preserving trees is a powerful way to help keep the planet cool.

Our garden centres in Dripsey, Cork, Loughrea and Galway city are fully stocked with many different types of trees, from fruit trees to evergreen. All at unbeatable prices. Do your bit for the environment today with a Tree from McD's!

2. Plant Pollinators

Open flowers Perfect for Pollinators

Planting Pollinators is the perfect way to help the environment while also creating an abundant vegetable/flower garden. Pollinators play a crucial role in the overall health of flowers, fruits, and seeds by assisting in the transfer and distribution of pollen.  Providing a safe and inviting habitat for beneficial insects like bees, butterflies, and more. Perfect for enhancing outdoor spaces with biodiversity.
