Biosafe Systems Supports Local Food Bank For Thanksgiving Campaign

BioSafe SystemsBioSafe Systems is sponsoring the 2013 Foodshare Connecticut Thanksgiving Turkey Drive.

Through this initiative, BioSafe has committed to donating $14,000 to provide more than 300
families with Thanksgiving dinner.

“This cause is close to our hearts as we have been members of the food and agriculture industry for 15 years,” says BioSafe Systems’ Tammy Raymond. “The fact that so many people in our community and across the nation are still going hungry is staggering. Partnering with Foodshare Connecticut, a partner of Feeding America and the Greater Hartford Food Bank, ensures that more than 10 million meals go to those in need every year.”

BioSafe Systems is asking the industry to join in its mission to Feed America. On top of your generosity, every dollar raised will be matched by BioSafe Systems – meaning donations will have double the impact towards ending hunger. Donors will not only be helping those in need, but will also gain recognition throughout the campaign from BioSafe Systems’ regular progress updates.

• $45 will provide one family in need with a holiday dinner.
• $135 would provide three families enough food to enjoy Thanksgiving.
• $500 would provide 11 families with reason to give thanks.
• $900 would give 20 families the chance to not worry about how to feed their family for the holiday this year.

“This program is very important to me and I am asking for help to achieve a goal of feeding over 300 families this Thanksgiving,” Raymond says.

To donate to BioSafe’s campaign, please mail a check to BioSafe Systems, 22 Meadow Street, East Hartford CT 06108 Attn: Tammy Raymond/Foodshare.

With the availability of water being the number one global risk based on its overall impact to society, it’s no surprise that big name retailers like Walmart, The Home Depot and Lowe’s have taken aggressive steps to reduce their water consumption at store level. More specifically, for the Spring 2016 selling season, Walmart has mandated that its horticultural partners be capillary mat compliant. This means that plants typically watered top-down will now be required to be watered through a sophisticated watering mat that helps saturate the plants from the bottom up. To help growers embrace this new requirement, Landmark Plastic has developed a new trade gallon tray with an open bottom that enables plants to be watered from the roots up. This not only helps utilize water more efficiently, but also helps retailers reduce labor costs associated with the task of watering. “We’ve made it our business to solve problems […]
