Why a box?
We are thinking outside the bag! We have been looking for more renewable packaging options. The box defines our move towards plant-based packaging, less plastic, and innovation towards sustainability as a model.
The box is made from 100% recycled cardboard corrugate — AND you can use it in your gardens as a mulch and to prevent weeds from sprouting up.
The liner is 100% recycled 1.5mil poly. This is a big deal! When goods are made with recycled content, they have a 30% to 90% lower carbon footprint than equivalent goods made with new materials.
The box is manufacture certified by three international Forestry Councils: The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI), and The Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes (PEFC).
What’s in the box?
What’s inside is even more amazing: 18 Quarts of the Good Dirt Potting Mix — a proprietary blend that starts with Veriflora® Certified Canadian Peat Moss harvested from responsibly managed peatlands, which means we’re dedicated to environmental protection, social responsibility, and quality performance. Unlike European Peat or American Peat, Canadian peat is sustainably managed, regenerating 70 times faster than the rate of harvest.
Bogbits®, a byproduct of sustainably harvested peat moss, are blended in to provide the structure for optimum porosity. This combination of Peat and BogBits provides just the right balance of air and water retention, making your plant’s roots very happy.
Unlike conventional potting mixes, Good Dirt does not contain any pine bark, which breaks down quickly and causes a potting mix to become dense, turning to muck and inhibiting root growth.
