Our Products Are Designed With The Environment In Mind
We have done our absolute best to ensure that the Hydro-herb kits we sell are as environmentally sound as we can make them. We source our parts carefully trying to ensure that we have as small a carbon footprint as we can. All of the parts in our kit are either recycled and recyclable or entirely biodegradable. The wine bottles that form the largest part of our kit are obviously reused rather than recycled minimising any carbon production from melting the glass down. We use capillary matting that is recycled and the plastic bottles in our kit are also made from recycled plastic. The Jiffy Pellets that we use are made of coir
(ground coconut husk) rather than peat, so that we are not contributing to the reduction of peat bogs. The cork lid/place mat come from renewable sources in Europe as do the natural rubber band. The terracotta pebbles used in the kit along with the cork and natural rubber band are all biodegradable.
All of our Hydro-herb kits contain sufficient hydroponic solution to last around 2 years. If you live in a soft water area you may find that you have enough to last quite a while longer, as you will need a little less each time you fill your kit.
Every kit has been supplied with spare parts these are so that if your herb should pass away perhaps due to being loved a little less than is ideal or just the vagaries of fate. You will have enough parts to be able to mount a second grow without any worries. Please note if it has been over a year since you first set up the kit we do suggest that you source additional newer seeds.
