Ball Horticultural Co.’s plantable, biobased container SoilWrap has been awarded USDA BioPreferred designation by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, falling within the USDA BioPreferred Landscaping and Agriculture-Plant and Flower Pots category. In addition, SoilWrap is also identified for Federal Procurement Preference by federal agencies and their contractors when making purchasing decisions.

Recognized by the USDA for having at least 85 percent biobased content, SoilWrap underwent third-party certification to assure the presence and amount of biobased ingredients, which is strictly monitored by the agency. SoilWrap packaging can now display the proper certification label mark to aid consumer decision-making on renewable, natural resource alternatives.

According to the agency, USDA BioPreferred products spur the development of the biobased industrial industry through value-added agricultural processing and manufacturing in rural communities; enhances the nation’s energy security by substituting biobased products for fossil energy-based products; and reduces the nation’s environmental impact by promoting products more benign to the environment.
