Improvements We Are Cultivating
We are profoundly lucky to have customers who care as much as we do about sustainability, and we want to keep you up to date on the projects underway here at Vego Garden to further lessen our footprint on the planet. We are currently working to to eliminate the protective plastic film from our panels, without jeopardizing quality. Currently the film functions to protect the panels from damage during manufacturing and shipping. During 2021 we worked hard to test solutions, and plan to release updated packaging without plastic film in 2022.
Meanwhile, our product packaging is getting an earth-friendly update, too. In 2022 we will begin phasing out our old packaging, and make the switch to eco-conscious brown boxes. Finally, we continue to seek opportunities to optimize the sustainability of our manufacturing locations. We are working to gradually shift our manufacturing closer to us here in Houston, Texas, so that we can have direct access to our products during manufacturing, and further reduce the overall carbon footprint of our products
Much like gardening, sustainability can be incredibly complex, and involves a lot of moving parts. But rest assured that we are committed to doing it right. Be sure to check in from time to time, as we will continue to keep our gardeners updated on our progress here on this page. In the meantime, let’s grow a greener future together.
