When it comes to sustainability, Botanicare, headquartered in Chandler, Arizona, walks the walk. The company regrinds all its plastic scraps—about 65,000 lbs. a month—for reuse and recycling. Botanicare’s hydroponic trays and reservoirs contain on average about 70% recycled content, and many of the black trays are 100% recycled content. This commitment to sustainability has also led the company to install 933 solar panels on its plastics division. One of the largest solar panel installations by a private company in Arizona, the panels produce around 340,000 kW hours of electricity per year—enough to power about 20 homes. Botanicare’s approach to product development includes continually examining and reducing the company’s carbon footprint in terms of shipping, electricity usage and the use of recycled and recyclable materials. For instance, Botanicare was an industry leader in the popularization of coco coir, made from empty coconut shells that would otherwise be discarded, as a hydroponic medium.
