Supporting the Environment

Our Philosophy

At HC, we believe sustainability is essential to ensuring our customers and our business improves the world as collective stewards of the earth, its citizens, and the products we all develop and cultivate. In addition, designing more environmentally conscious products and making them accessible and affordable to more people benefits our shared economy by normalizing those products and creating demand in the market.

Resin Materials

The HC Companies sources and purchases resin comprised of post-consumer, post-industrial recycled materials for the manufacturing of our horticultural containers.

Our Manufacturing

Our Production

Our facilities in Middlefield, Ohio, Sebring, Florida, and Sparks, Nevada produce hundreds of thousands of horticultural containers each year made with both post-industrial and post-consumer recycled or reprocessed resins*. Additionally, our Burlington, Canada facility, which produces our full line of fiber containers, utilizes 100% recycled newsprint, corrugate, and raw newsprint in the production process, proudly recognized as FSC® 100% Recycled.

*The amount and stream of recycled and reprocessed resin may vary by product

Our Markets

Some of the benefits in using recycled materials in our manufacturing include:

We’re creating a truly cyclical manufacturing process, while keeping SERVICE to our customers and our planet at the forefront. The notion of supporting a more circular economy should not only be a reality for the end user of products but consistently applied throughout the production process of the manufacturer.

NOTE: While we strive to use 100% recycled materials in the majority of our black horticultural containers, on some
occasions the percent of recycled materials is reduced based on manufacturing limitations and customer requirements.
