Our Green Initiatives
Green Circle Growers in Oberlin provides plants to area stores such as Home Depot, Heinen's, Wal-Mart, Sam's Club and Giant Eagle. Focusing on our green initiatives, we have growing down to a science and there is practically no waste. Water is used by the plants and then it's returned back to holding tanks where it's filtered and gets used over and over again. We use high-efficiency energy curtains that retain the heat and reduce energy costs throughout the facility.
When it comes to heating the greenhouses the use of radiant heat is more efficient and cuts down on the use of natural gas by about 40 percent. The heat is produced by a wood boiler fueled by refuse from local tree removal companies. Instead of natural gas, they use sawdust, wood chips, and even tire chips from tire disposal companies.Transportation within the facility is also green with the use of electric carts that cut down on gas and diesel pollution.
