Here at The HC Companies, we’re thrilled to announce a significant step forward in our commitment to sustainability. As leaders in the horticultural industry, we understand the importance of reducing waste and conserving energy to protect our environment. That’s why we’re excited to introduce a guaranteed minimum of 10% PCR (Post-Consumer Recycled) content on average into our renowned line of horticultural containers.

PCR plastics are crucial in our collective efforts to create a cleaner, greener future. By incorporating a minimum of 10% PCR content within the 50% post-industrial recycled material we’ve been using for many years, we’re leading the way for sustainability in our industry. This move not only aligns with our dedication to environmental stewardship but also simplifies compliance for businesses operating in regions with stringent plastic-focused regulations.

Our commitment to sustainability doesn’t stop there. Alongside PCR plastics, we offer a diverse range of eco-friendly growing containers, including biobased materials, compostable plastics, and microplastic-free options like our Ecogrow and BioPax lines. We understand that businesses have varying sustainability goals, and we’re here to provide solutions tailored to their specific needs.

In addition to innovative sustainable products, we’re proud to offer support in ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) data and reporting for horticultural containers. With credible third-party certifications and expert guidance, we help our partners navigate the complexities of ESG reporting, further enhancing their commitment to sustainability.

By partnering with The HC Companies, businesses facing increasing environmental regulations can embrace responsible practices without compromise. Together, we’re not just meeting regulatory requirements – we’re building a more sustainable future for generations to come.

Let’s grow sustainably, together.
