Bringing maple syrup to our customers means everything to us - and so does doing it in such a way that respects and protects the environment as much as possible.
When you buy Harvest Maple, you’re getting our delicious maple syrup in a reusable glass mason jar. Additionally, we’ve chosen compostable, biodegradable labels (this includes the adhesive!) made exclusively with non-GMO materials. We selected these labels carefully, mindful of bringing our customers labels from natural, renewable resources.
Our syrup is a gift from the trees and the earth, the very least we can do as a company is to respect the earth in return and provide our customers with packaging that reduces plastic waste and encourages reusing and composting.
When you have finished your syrup, it’s easy to remove the label, toss it in your compost bin and wash and reuse the jar! If you don’t currently compost and are looking for help in starting, stay tuned for a future blog with tips. It’s an easy way to recycle kitchen and yard waste, give back to the earth, and further reduce what is being put into landfills.
Our syrup is organic and natural. Maple syrup is just one ingredient and that’s enough! We don’t need to add anything, this is Mother Nature doing her thing. In choosing the packaging for our syrup, we wanted to carry through this sense of living clean into our containers and labels.
We would love for you to join Harvest Maple in playing a part in being responsible for how we treat our environment. Big differences are made from all of us making small, mindful decisions in our daily lives.
In 2017 (the most recent figures that the EPA has available) Americans recovered over 67.0 million tons of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) through recycling, and almost 27 million tons through composting. That’s equivalent to 1.13 pounds per person per day for recycling and 0.45 pounds per person per day for composting! It all adds up in helping to reduce landfill waste.
