Jiffy O’Growblock now Ecocert
The Jiffy O’Growblock is now ECOCERT certified. ECOCERT strives to enable production processes that respect the environment, with better management of natural resources. This way, Ecocert stimulates socially responsible sectors that offer better product quality and safety.
The Jiffy Growblock is the number one choice for all cut-flower and vegetable growers using hydroponic systems, greenhouses or other nursery applications. And thanks to air-pruning, better temperature control, and versatility, Jiffy Growblocks create healthier, stronger plants.
Reducing the use of plastic in packaging and production is a global issue, and at Jiffy we aim to lower the use of plastics for our growing media. Since 2019, Jiffy has switched from PE and PP plastics to PLA netting for the manufacturing of all Jiffy Growblocks and Jiffy Pellets. All Jiffy Growblocks now use PLA netting. This is made from polylactic acid (PLA), an alternative to plastic, based on corn starch. PLA netting is a lightweight, fine-fibre web which is biodegradable and compostable under controlled industrial conditions. It is certified under EU norm EN13432.
We are constantly striving to help our customers grow their products in a sustainable or renewable way. It’s an exciting journey.
