Nature's Cuisine is a 100% Added Value Program. The wood we purchase are off cuts that we turn into our products. Even our sawdust that we get from our production facility goes to the local farmers.
Our wood is purchased in North America. The wood is PEFC-100, stands for Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification and in turn is a Sustainable Forestry Program.
The waste that is collected is either sawdust that the local farmers pick up with their sawdust bins at no charge as some mills charge up to $300-$400 a load. Other PCS of waste are collected by the penitentiary for the inmates to make toys for kids.
The boxes we us have 42% recycled material and are 100% recyclable, The shrink wrap we use is a food grade type and any waste is recycled.
The wood is stored inside of our facility. The shrink wrap line is a low electrical unit that when on heats our building as well so we do not have to use any additional heat.
The wood we purchase is 100% natural and is certified kilned dried.
