Apple Crate is proud to announce that we are nearing the end of our Green Business Certification. We've had a lot of fun figuring out how to get rid of the nasties in our stores!!! Lots of help has been offered by Jodi at Sustainable Sandhills. Her suggestion to use Bryant Recycling has been a Godsend. We're now able to recycle most of our waste without leaving the building. All glass, plastic, paper and cardboard are currently being recycled at close to 100%. We've replaced many plastic containers and bags with post consumer recycled paper products and are working on our computer and office supplies. Being chemical free is extra easy for us, since we sell great cleaning products that are "green" already. YEAH!! We're constantly looking for ways to be a green retailer and to honor our customers and our environment.

Organic oranges are grown without the use of pesticides, fungicides or synthetic fertilizers. Research by the American Chemical Society found that organic oranges contain 30 percent more vitamin C than their conventional counterparts. Next time you shop for this juicy fruit, go organic.
