Scrap wool &  fabric are mulched and then covered with a layer of cardboard to create
a new garden path at the Holy Lamb Organics on-site organic garden


What does it mean to be a zero waste manufacturing company? At Holy Lamb Organics we are conscious of how we go about every step of our production. We promise that every by-product from our production is either composted or recycled. There is no such thing as "waste" and truly as consumers when we throw something away in the garbage, there is no "away".

Here are some examples of how we acheive this goal. Our by-products consist of fabric, thread, yarn and wool scraps. We initially cut our fabric in an efficient way so there is as little waste as possible. Smaller pieces of both wool and fabric are used to make smaller products or are used to make small samples for store display and for customer requests.

Smaller pieces of fabrics, wool, elastic, yarn, etc. are donated to schools for children to use in art projects and doll making, or are made available for free. We use small wool scraps as insulation in our old 1902 manufacturing facility as wool is an amazing insulator. We also use scraps as a mulch layer when making paths in our organic garden as seen in the picture above. First we lay fabric scraps down over grass or any area that is to be covered. Next thick layers of cardboard are placed on top of the scraps. We then cover the cardboard with about 3-4 inches of wood chips. This creates the perfect garden path!

For the tiniest of fabric, thread, yarn and wool scraps that just can't be used for much (even the contents of the shop vac) we give them to the worms. That's right folks. The fancy term for this is vermiculture. Red worms, the same type that are in a home composting pile, eat up the fabric and wool as it begins to break down. All that is required is some patience. In the end, through nature's decomposers, our scraps magically transform into rich earth. Isn't that a happy ending? For a great source of red worms for your compost please support Oakville's own vermiculture business: Black River Worm Farm.

In addition to re-using our manufacturing by-products, we also make conscious choices regarding our packaging. We started a Plastic Free Campaign in 2009 in which we no longer place our products inside of plastic. The cardboard shipping box, secured tightly with tape is sufficiently keeps your product safe and sound during its journey from Holy Lamb Organics facility to your home. We also always choose recycled paper products and as green as possible printing and office supplies.We encourage our vendors to make green choices as well and lobby for recycled packaging whenever possible.

We highly encourage our customers to recycle or reuse their organic bedding when it has reached the end of it's life cycle (many decades later). Please see the link below for suggestions on how you can recycle, reuse or compost your product at the end of it's life cycle.
