Here at rePotme our internet presence is powered by wind turbines while geothermal energy beneath the ground provides the heating and air conditioning for our Delaware Headquarters. Electricity for our operations comes from a local co-operative that gets a portion of its energy from a solar farm just up the road. All rainwater collected from the roof is directed into into two ponds that are regularly visited by a wide variety of birds including a pair of bald eagles and a blue heron! The farm is primarily meadow lands graced by a 100 year old barn. By coincidence, our street name is Paradise Road and this wonderful rural farmland is appropriately named. When we are not filling your orders, we take in all that mother nature has created around us.
We are sensitive to our responsibility regarding the environment and try to use materials and resources with that in mind. Many of the items we offer are renewable and others are made from recycled material. One example of renewable materials we use are those made from coconuts. These include all of our coconut husk chips which are used in many of our mixes. Coir is also processed from the coconut husk, as is our husk fiber. Much of our media is renewable, and if in doubt, we try to use as little as possible of it while still maintaining the integrity and quality of our products.
Examples of recycled materials we use include most of our white plastic pots, all of the boxes we ship our products in, and even the packing paper we use to secure the products that are in our boxes. When we have to use packing peanuts to protect items, we use pure white peanuts that can be reused by our customers in the bottom of orchid pots.
Our GET OFF ME! Natural Bug Spray is an all natural cinnamon and water infusion that uses no chemicals save a few drops of baby shampoo as a surfactant.
We will continue to take our responsibility to be careful in what we do and how we use products with a mindful approach to our part in protecting and caring for the environment we treasure and seek to protect.
