FREE Sunflower Seeds from Morrisons this April
Morrisons are offering a FREE pack of sunflower seeds in an effort to plant hope for the future and ‘Make Good Things Happen’ in local communities through small acts of kindness.
The supermarket will be giving away 2.5 million packs of sunflower seeds to customers in store and online – that’s enough seeds to grow a whopping 25 million sunflowers, and bring colour and hope to homes and gardens across the country.
You can grab a free pack of seeds from the check out staff, or from the customer services desk.
Morrisons have teamed up with The Sun newspaper to create a dedicated supplement, ‘The Sunflower’, packed to the brim with gardening tips, craft ideas, and inspiring stories of hope from store colleagues and Community Champions.
To give readers somewhere to grow their sunflowers, as well as a crafty project to enjoy, Morrisons have also created a step-by-step guide on how to make a simple origami plant pot – using none other than The Sunflower supplement!
Not only are these cute plant pots easy to make, but as they’re made from recycled newspaper, they’re a great environmentally friendly option, too.

Morrisons have also recently announced another eco- friendly step by announcing that the supermarket will remove all plastic ‘bags for life’ from every store nationwide, saving 3,200 tonnes of plastic per year, following the removal of single use plastic bags in 2017.
Customers will instead be able to buy paper bags - which are reusable, recyclable, water resistant, tear resistant and can hold up to 16kg. A life cycle assessment carried out by The University of Sheffield has also shown that our paper bags have a lower carbon footprint than the plastic equivalent.
Paper bags will cost 30p and be available alongside other reusable options including string, jute, cotton and reusable woven bags, priced between 75p and £2.50.
