On July 20, G&R Farms in Tattnall County announced its participation in the How2Recycle labeling program, a standardized labeling system that clearly communicates recycling instructions to the public.

As part of their How2Recycle program commitment, G&R Farms has already moved many recyclable packaging initiatives forward including widely recyclable boxes and Store Drop-off recyclable bags, as well as using 20% recycled material in their film and netting on their bags.

“Consumers want more than just quality; they want to feel that the products and brands that they purchase align with their personal values and that those companies are doing their part.” Said G&R Farms Vice President Walt Dasher, “Consideration for recycling and sustainable packaging solutions has to be one of our top priorities as we help solve waste related problems.”

 As a third-generation family farm, G&R Farms began in Southeast Georgia with a small farm in 1945.  Today, the organization has grown to over 5,000 acres encompassing several crops with a main focus on sweet onions.

How2Recycle focuses on taking the guesswork out of recycling and getting more materials into recycling bins. How2Recycle involves a coalition of more than 380 forward-thinking brands and members who want to effectively communicate the recyclability of their packaging by empowering consumers through clear and concise packaging labels.
