World Class Flowers and Jardines de los Andes
are committed to helping the environment. We have many programs in place to be environmentally friendly, and we continue to look for new ways to sustainably coexist with the world.
Reduce Plastic Usage
We introduced a new vegetable paper sleeve that uses 0% plastic.
We recycle 100% of our greenhouse plastic.
We collect 96% of rainwater to be used in our crops. We have 80,000,000 cubic feet of rainwater reservoirs to water our crops year round.
Our reservoirs are a sanctuary for local wildlife.
We use drip irrigation on all of our fields; this allows us to use only the water that is needed, without waste.
We compost 100% of our vegetable material waste to reuse in our fields and keep a healthy soil for future crops.
By using compost, we reduce the chemicals needed for fertilization and sterilization.
Our NJ facility is 100% solar.
Our crop lights are 100% energy saving (a 30% reduction of energy consumption).
We have an ongoing ornamental tree planting campaign; as of today, 72,000 trees have been planted to capture carbon dioxide.
