Back in the late 1980's, Summit Plastic began investigating recycling possibilities at a time when the term was not even main-stream.
An Akron-located building became “research central” for this industry-first project; further researched in southern Ohio. At that time there was little equipment and even fewer systems for dealing with the unusual characteristics of horticulture packaging.
Then, as now, Summit Plastic is committed to lessening the impact on our environment. However, we believe re-cycling alone is not the long-term answer to landfill diversion.
Our focus is on diverting horticulture containers from the land fill through recycling, composting, plantability and alternate material sources.
The long-term strategy is designed to explore natural resource options for seamless industry integration in horticulture packaging — that is the Summit Plastic goal.
Currently there are three options available – rice, corn and TerraShell; all compostable and one, rice, plantable, each are also Veriflora Approved Input Materials.
Although we cannot manufacture with 100% green items, be proud in the knowledge that when you grow in any of our options, you are using a green-thinking and progressive alternative to the traditional re-cycled product.
