Sustainable Development 101: How to enhance and grow your product offering

Available on-demand.

This webinar is a practical overview on identifying opportunities for sustainable design and best practices on overcoming key barriers to integrating alternative solutions in your growing operations. Our speakers will explain five of the key principles on how to maximize your product value and offer real-life case studies.

OVERVIEW
We know sustainable products are a growing business opportunity, but what is the best way to go about incorporating alternatives into your business? Better yet, what’s the risk if you don’t? A successful pathway to devising a fit-for-purpose product portfolio while reducing your carbon footprint can take shape in a variety of ways. While it’s not a one-size-fits-all, there are a few key elements that can help when considering and prioritizing activities to accelerate your product value offering. Every industry presents unique barriers, but also creative solutions! In the horticulture space, the opportunity to look at internal processes, product components and increased storytelling can really set your products apart among competitors. We’ll take a closer look at specific examples represented in the value chain and apply various lenses to help provide guidance on ways to maximize product messaging. Solutions exist within your suppliers, customers – and your customer’s customer – so let us help you guide the way. Moderated by editorial director Tim Hodson and sponsored by HC Companies.

Understanding fiber growing containers through real-world applications

There are many challenges the organic grower faces on any given day, many stressors which the traditional grower doesn’t often wrestle with when cultivating their crops. While diseases, soil conditions, weeds, watering and governmental regulations are commonalities for all growers across North America, in order for crops to be certified organic, growers must adhere to strict guidelines, daunting paperwork and mandated compliance throughout the growing process. Fiber growing containers provide a sustainable, biodegradable, certified solution for organic growers.

In this webinar, The HC Companies will highlight how their EcoGrow® Organic Growing Containers can be successfully implemented in real-world growing conditions by providing results from actual trials done by actual growers in the horticultural industry. They’ll discuss growing environments, irrigation, retail sales, performance and degradation so you can determine if fiber growing containers are the right solution for your operation.

Lead by HC’s Bryce Anderson, a tenured Territory Sales Manager and fiber specialist for almost a decade, he’s ready to guide you into the world of fiber growing containers, while answering all of your questions. Attendees will have the opportunity to request a FREE Sample Kit of EcoGrow® products at the end of the webinar.
