“Green” Radar

Going Green

Going Green

You want to care for your family, home & the environment by making positive choices in your life. When I was deciding on a business to work part-time from home I took this into consideration.  Watkins puts it’s “Green” (money) where it’s mouth is. Their commitment to practice “green” manufacturing is in their DNA. Watkins has been a pioneer in natural living since 1868, using the finest natural ingredients. They continue their commitment to their customers & the environment by reducing waste & implementing processes to conserve energy.  Watkins continues their goal to make a positive impact on our environment.

Some of the ways Watkins reduces waste & makes a positive impact on the planet.

  • They have a full line of plant based home care products free of pollutants & are biodegradable.
  • J.R. Watkins Apothecary line of natural-based personal care has 40 products that are “Certified” by the NPA (Natural Products Association).
  • Implement a strict paper, plastic, & aluminum recycling program.
  • Use biodegradable packing materials.
  • Utilize e-communications & encourage Associates, customers & vendors to use information online vs. in printed form.
  • Uses gravity fed filling processes:  Fill our bulk dry mixes using time-tested gravity feeds, which allows us to conserve energy that normally would be used to power a pneumatic or conveyor system.
  • Innovative use of lighter weight packaging for products. By simply reducing  plastic bottle weight they have saved thousands of pounds of plastic from waste.
  • Soy-based ink in our printed marketing materials.
  • Encourage vendors to cut waste & use renewable energy sources.
  • Employ lean manufacturing & business practices; helping eliminate waste & streamline productivity.
  • Full line of USDA certified 100% All-Natural Pure Extracts & Organic Herbs and Spices.
