With Earth Day coming up this weekend, it is more important than ever to shine a light on sustainability. This year, Earth Day is focused on Investing in Our Planet. We believe that sustainability is not a trend, it should be the standard, especially among watering and garden products.
Our Deep Drip Watering Stakes decrease water waste, conserving up to 50% more outdoor water use than surface watering alone. Water and nutrients are delivered directly to deep feeder roots through the stakes’ filtered holes. This method of deep root watering takes less time/water to water your plants more effectively. Delivering water below ground also prevents water loss from evaporation and run-off.
We believe it is also important to focus on sustainability outside of our product line. That’s why the majority of our product packaging, including shipping boxes, are made from recyclable cardboard. We estimated that in last year we avoided about 1.6 metric tons in emissions with our FSC and SFI certified packaging.
This earth day, we also donated to EARTHDAY.ORG’s Canopy Project in an effort to help conservation and restoration efforts this year. Each dollar donated goes to plant new trees that that greatly help restoration efforts around the globe. Each new tree can drastically help the ecosystem, and can be grown with as little as $1 a tree. if you’re feeling the green spirit this earth day make sure to get out there and give back to our planet through conservation efforts or community events. We also encourage you yo check out the canopy project through earthday.org and join the fight for a greener planet.
How are you celebrating Earth Day this year?
