Espoma is at the forefront of developing green packaging and is the first plant food company in the U.S. to utilize plant-based packaging. Beginning in 2019, many of their fertilizer bags are made of a bio-based polymer derived from sugar cane.
Espoma’s Production Facility
Espoma uses 100% solar-powered electricity to run its manufacturing and office operations. Solar panels cover 67,000 sq. ft. of warehouse and office rooftops and produce enough power to supply the equivalent of 70 homes for a full year, saving over 1.5 million pounds of greenhouse gas emissions annually.
Espoma strives for zero waste in its manufacturing process. Towards this end they have achieved less than 1% waste in packaging and raw materials and are among the nation’s largest recyclers of manure, preventing millions of pounds of raw manure from leaching into waterways.
Espoma Commits to Environmental Education
Espoma supports the National Garden Club Plant America Grant Program and provides support for community and children’s gardening programs through grants and donations.
