We want to let you know that we do our best in being Green. All of our recyclable waste is disposed of properly. Most of the waste we produce are paper based products. The great thing about paper products is that they have a wide range of uses. Here is what we do with ours:
Our goal is to keep as much of the recycling in-house as possible. We do all of this to reduce our carbon footprint and that of our suppliers.
For packaging we use air cushioning material which is easily recyclable. Simply pop or cut to deflate and then recycle the plastic film as you would with other plastic films or plastic shopping bags. We are also using non-toxic biodegradable packing peanuts made from corn starch to pack our fragile shipments in. Before now it was always up to the customer to figure out a way to dispose of styrofoam peanuts and most of the time it would end up in the trash. With our new starch based peanuts all you have to do is wash them down the drain with water, no mess, no fuss and no guilty conscience from dumping those foam peanuts in the trash! Now, how many other hydroponics stores do that?
