HC has scientifically created sustainable growing solutions designed for the needs of growers, retailers and gardeners. Benefits include:
Sustainable growing containers provide an optimal solution for propagation, as the entire pot can be safely planted in garden beds, landscapes, patio containers or deck-rail boxes without disturbing the root system. The composition of the container is biodegradable and will decompose over time, allowing the roots to naturally expand in their new environment without any negative effects to the roots.
It’s worth noting that fiber sustainable growing containers experience what is known as air pruning (also called self-pruning). When roots are exposed to air (combined with the absence of high humidity) roots are essentially “burned” off, which causes the plant to continuously produce new, healthy roots. Saving you time while causing little stress to the plant.
Overall, you’ve limited the waste heading to landfills and saved the consumer time, while satisfying their need to feel like a positive contributor to the environment. Your business will also garner some word-of-mouth-marketing for yourself and your sustainability efforts, which is invaluable in today’s social arena.
Today’s consumers (world-wide) are demanding more sustainable growing solutions. When they place a plant into the ground, they want to know they’re making a difference – no matter how big or small – it all has an impact. Sustainable, molded pulp planting containers are a truly full circle solution for your business, so from grower to gardener to consumer and more, we’re improving our world together.

In a recent Nielsen Company survey, 88% of global consumers said it was extremely important or very important for companies to roll-out initiatives to improve the environment.
“My students enjoyed using your fiber pots for their growing project. The pots held up well and plants grew well in them. The root systems of the plants appeared to be larger and more fibrous than when the same plant was grown in a black plastic pot. Thank you for sharing and providing this opportunity for my students.” – Dr. Helen T. Kraus, an Associate Professor at the Department of Horticultural Science at North Carolina State UniversityReal-World Results
