WATERLOOVILLE firm Hampshire Cosmetics has signed a deal with Green Insight, a social enterprise company set up by two charities.

Groundwork Solent and the Wheatsheaf Trust will use Green Insight, based in Gosport and Southampton, to provide grounds maintenance services to firms in Hampshire and to give jobs to unemployed people.

Hampshire Cosmetics signed up with Green Insight to design a wildflower meadow at its offices.

The firm’s Karen Taylor said: ‘The results are tremendous – colourful flower beds, tidy borders and mown grass, all of which are appreciated and commented on by our staff and customers.’

All profits generated by Green Insight are returned to the two charities.
