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
  • Our loyalty cards are printed on recycled ABS plastic
  • 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
