“Vermont is experiencing a Renaissance of agriculture.”
Vermont Secretary of Agriculture Chuck Ross.This is an organically grown product that contains no harmful chemicals commonly found in petroleum based plastic products including BPA, PVC, melamine or phthalates.We are being buried in plastic waste – estimates indicate that over 300 million tons of plastic a year is produced globally. Most plastic is made from virgin material and recycling still only removes a fraction from the waste stream. Plastic creates toxic pollution at every stage of its existence, including manufacture, use, and disposal. Plastic is a material the Earth cannot digest. Every bit of plastic that has ever been created still exists, including the small amount that has been incinerated and has become toxic particulate matter.Independent, organic farmers committed to farming methods that restore, maintain and enhance the ecosystem grow Tim’s Easter Basket Grass. By purchasing from these growers, we support the expansion of sustainable land-based enterprises.Whereas the plastic product is predominantly, if not entirely, manufactured abroad and imported to US consumers, our natural grass product creates jobs in a highly rural area of Vermont.
