We are Passionate about Plants and the Planet

Green = looking for sustainable and scalable operating methods while being keenly aware of the impact we make, not just on those who purchase our plants, but on this planet we call home.

Are you passionate about plants and the planet?

If you are a plant person, you are concerned about the Earth.

You nurture and grow the plants in your home because you care about your home eco system.

We are passionate about plants and the planet, too

As plant producers, Costa Farms is conscious about what it takes to produce plants for you. That’s why the company has taken steps to make the production of plants more sustainable. Costa Farms is working toward reducing their carbon footprint and their impact on the environment.

Our Green View

Here is Costa Farms Green Mission Statement: 

Green = looking for sustainable and scalable operating methods while being keenly aware of the impact we make, not just on those who purchase our plants, but on this planet we call home.

Harnessing renewable energy

Plants need sunshine to grow--and our growing facilities and corporate offices are located in some of the sunniest spots on Earth.

The solar panels installed on the roof of Costa Farms corporate headquarters produce 26% of the energy used by Costa Farms in this location.

We power our growth with the sun

Costa Farms’ solar panels produce 360,000 kwh/year, which grows plants and ideas in our green houses and offices.

This amount is enough to power 33 houses a year.

The result of solar panel energy production has reduced the CO2 emissions by 810 metric tons a year.

We save trees by recycling

Plant production results in the use of cardboard and paper.

But we recycle as much of these materials as we can.

In 2019, we recycled 189 tons of cardboard and paper.

That equates to 3,213 trees saved.

We recycle plastic

In 2019, we recycled 1,930 tons of plastic.

This is the equivalent of 69,480,000 plastic 16-ounce bottles.

We plant with sustainable soil alternatives

Peat moss takes a lifetime to regenerate.

That’s why 80% of the soil used at Costa Farms since 2010 comes from sustainable coconut coir.
