Being thoughtful stewards of the environment is one of Perdue Farms’ most important social pillars. In fact, ‘Planet’ is one of the four goals by which Perdue Farms’ associates are measured and held accountable each year. For our E-Commerce initiative specifically, we’re taking the following steps to lessen our carbon footprint and protect our ecosystem:
For every order shipped, we will donate to the Arbor Day Foundation, whose mission is to replant and revitalize damaged areas of our nation’s forests. This donation helps reduce the carbon footprint required to ship our products to you.
We designed our shipping boxes with sustainability in mind. Every box is made out of 100 percent recyclable cardboard and insulated with Green Cell Foam®. Green Cell Foam®’s eco-friendly insulation is biodegradable, compostable and made from high-grade non-GMO cornstarch that is also dissolvable in water.
You’ll receive a reusable and recyclable grocery bag with your purchase. Reach for our bag next time you go to the store to avoid using paper or plastic.
A pollinator seed packet is also included in every box. Our nation wouldn’t be able to produce the food we do without the bees and butterflies, who help to make one out of every three bites of food we eat. Plant the seeds to create a robust pollinator habitat near your home!
