According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “Sustainability is based on a simple principle: Everything that we need for our survival and well-being depends, either directly or indirectly, on our natural environment. To pursue sustainability is to create and maintain the conditions under which humans and nature can exist in productive harmony to support present and future generations.”
In short, it’s all about satisfying the needs of the present without adversely affecting the future.
Protective packaging, e.g., molded pulp and other sustainable eco-friendly packaging substances are HC’s choice for manufacturers and retailers seeking to use organic packaging solutions. Our fiber, biodegradable solutions are far superior to other options on the market today. Not only for their strength and durability but for their composition from high-quality, 100% recycled materials. Better still, our biodegradable solutions are produced in a closed-loop water recycling facility for true sustainability. Did you know, paper is recyclable up to seven times?
Sustainable growing containers are produced using the molded pulp in our closed-loop manufacturing facility in Canada to eliminate water waste. They breathe like clay pots, provide the perfect environment for root development and insulation, are automation-friendly, biodegradable, contaminant-free, durable, and in some cases, suitable for organic production under NOP and COR.
“Sustainable products, e.g., molded pulp, are those products that provide environmental, social and economic benefits while protecting public health and environment over their whole life cycle, from the extraction of raw materials until the final disposal.”
For the grower, this is an opportunity to bring your plant’s full circle by utilizing and marketing a series of sustainable fiber growing containers that are also certified for organic farming (EcoGrow® only). That provides those individuals who are predominantly more environmentally conscious with choices, thus securing them as a customer rather than surrendering them to the competition who might already have a sustainable option in their arsenal.
EcoGrow® containers breathe like clay pots, provide an optimal environment for root systems and biodegrade quickly when planted or worked into the soil. EcoGrow molded fiber pots are suitable for organic production under NOP and COR.
