Reaching for Green
We’re trying to help green everybody’s world by recycling and reducing waste.
- Biodegradable plastic bags or paper bags if you need them for your purchases
- A large part of our waste is sent to be recycled
- We recycle or reuse our plastic plant containers
- We sell many products in bulk dispensers, thus eliminating a lot of excess packaging
- Many of our store fixtures are purchased used and repurposed, thus delaying the use of “new” raw materials
- We reuse the bubble wrap and styrofoam peanuts that our suppliers use to ship materials to us
- No new building for us! Hillside Feed is in an old Skelly gasoline filling station
- Unsold plants are composted to improve the soil in our street side flower bed
- We’re a collection site for Wichita Food Bank. It helps our community and reduces the amount of fuel needed to collect the food.
- Many of our products are produced on-site or are locally sourced
