Green products, services and other announcements from green companies.
At Nuts.com, we understand the responsibility we have in protecting our environment for future generations. Our beloved family-owned business has been around for three generations already, and we would love to continue making hearts and tummies smile for three more, at least! Over 80 years since our founding, Nuts.com currently offers more than 3,000 products of nuts, dried fruit, snacks, candy, and cooking and baking supplies.
We continue to make strides in the direction of running our business with more eco-friendly practices. To package our products, we use 100% post-consumer recycled cardboard boxes to save trees and reduce the impact on landfills. We recycle all of our boxes and our customers can too. We only use starch biodegradable packing peanuts which will break down naturally once they're thrown away. For even easier disposal, the packing peanuts can also be dissolved under running water in your sink.
We also take pride in how we keep our warehouse lit. We replaced all HID (metal halide) lights with energy efficient fluorescent light fixtures, which consume nearly 60% less energy. When we aren't working in one area of our warehouse, our lights aren't either; we use motion sensors so that the lights go out when there's no one around.
We're proud to provide a healthy and environmentally-conscious snacking alternative with our offering of over 250 certified organic foods. From cooking staples like organic quinoa to nutritious snacks like organic almonds, we believe in making nourishing food options accessible to our customers. We also offer nutrient-dense organic superfoods like organic chia seeds, which can be hard to find in local grocery stores.
Our facility is organically certified by the California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF), which holds our business to the highest standard available for organic foods. We maintain our certification through regular inspections and monitoring by both the CCOF and the USDA. Our certification is your assurance that our organic foods are grown and handled according to the strictest procedures available.
