Perdue Farms Commitment to the Environment

Being thoughtful stewards of the environment is one of Perdue Farms’ most important social pillars. They are taking the following steps to lessen our carbon footprint and protect our ecosystem:

  • For every bundle shipped, Perdue Farms will donate to the Arbor Day Foundation, which is working to replant damaged areas of our nation’s forests. This donation will help reduce the carbon footprint required to ship the products to you.
  • The shipping boxes were designed with sustainability in mind. Every box is made out of 100 percent recyclable cardboard and insulated with Green Cell Foam®. Green Cell Foam® is eco-friendly packaging and is biodegradable, compostable, and made from high-grade non-GMO cornstarch that is dissolvable in water. 
  • You’ll receive a reusable and recyclable grocery bag with every purchase. Reach for the bag next time you go to the store to avoid using paper or plastic.
  • A pollinator seed packet is also included in every box. Perdue Farms wouldn’t be able to produce the food they do without bees and butterflies, which help to make one out of every three bites of food we eat. Plant the seeds to create a robust pollinator habitat near your home!
