Armstrong Garden Centers has made the switch to colorpacks made from 100% recycled beverage bottles in all packs distributed from their local growing facilities. This “bottle pack” is the first to include a number 1 chasing arrow on the packaging and can be recycled when put into blue recycle trash can. Armstrong is the first retailer in the industry to make this move to a 100% post consumer recycled colorpack and is committed to helping the environment one step at a time.
Armstrong Garden Centers is also trying to make the recycling process easy. After purchasing and transplanting color from the colorpack, consumers can easily recycle the bottle pack in their blue recycle bin or take it to a local recycling center. Another recycling program, launched in 2008, allows consumers to drop off their used nursery containers at any local Armstrong Garden Center and Armstrong will sort and recycle the containers.
Understanding that consumers have busy lives but also want to help the environment, Armstrong offers consumers eco-friendly solutions like the recycled bottle packs, biodegradable bags, drought-resistant plants, organically-grown vegetables and herbs in biodegradable pots.
