TWINSBURG, Ohio, March 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The HC Companies – North America's leading manufacturer of horticultural containers – has been formally recognized by the Forest Stewardship Council® for their portfolio of fiber growing and protective packaging solutions with the designation of "FSC® Recycled 100%". This recognition is part of HC's continued commitment towards manufacturing more sustainable offerings for the market.
"For over 30 years, HC's been providing fiber-based solutions to the North American market - helping organizations and communities positively impact their environmental footprint," says Bob Mayer, President and CEO of The HC Companies. "We are honored that our fiber-based solutions now carry this prestigious designation as we continue to innovate our product line to satisfy the environmental demands of growers, garden centers, big-box stores and of course consumers."
Products which bear the "FSC® Recycled 100%" designation have been verified as being made from 100% recycled content (either post-consumer or pre-consumer reclaimed materials). The use of FSC Recycled products can help to alleviate the pressure of demand on sources of virgin material, thereby helping to protect the world's forests.
