Costco Sustainability Windset Farms Tomato
[MUSIC PLAYING] From clear, fresh water, to fertile soil, to lush, green plants, these are the roots of a healthy ecosystem to which we all belong. So what does it mean when you choose a Windset Farms tomato? When you choose a Windset Farms tomato, you choose a farm that is concerned about the health of its plants, its workers, and the environment. During the day, our rooftop solar systems, such as the one at our facility in Santa Maria, provide us with a renewable and sustainable source of energy. While our thermal screens help preserve heat inside the greenhouse, allowing us to sustainably conserve the climate for our plants at night. Combining reverse osmosis and ozone with water recovery and recirculation systems, we reuse our water supply over and over with very little waste. Along with these systems, we further treat our recovered wastewater using biofilters, virtually eliminating all nitrates that are sent back into the ground. We're very proud of our water-supply management, which helps us reach our goal for best practices in environmental protection. Whether it's through our recycling efforts, waste composting, or being a leader in sustainable growing practices, we connect with the community by delivering natural, safe produce. So don't overlook the choice of one tomato. When you make the simple choice of selecting Windset Farms produce, you dedicate yourself to a sustainable mindset that leads to the overall quality of our food, our health, and our Earth. Happy tomatoes, and happy hearts.
