Vermont Organics is committed to protecting the environment. Their factory’s wastewater treatment plant treats approximately 100,000 gallons of wastewater daily with an organic and nutrient removal efficiency of approximately 99.5 percent. In fact, treated water that is discharged into nearby Lake Arrowhead has a very high quality effluent and is as clean as or cleaner than the natural lake water. In addition, waste bacterial sludge generated from the treatment process is dried and used as a great organic fertilizer.

Vermont Organics also maintains an environmentally friendly solid waste program. We routinely collect and recycle cardboard, metal cans, glass, paper, and magazines. We also recycle the following:

  • Used motor oil
  • Metal
  • Treated wastewater biosolids
  • Waste vegetable oils
  • Fluorescent bulbs
  • Machinery parts
  • Washing solvents
  • Mercury wast

  1. Thanks for mentioning Vermont Organics Baby Formula. I used to live near Burlington and it’s nice to know a baby formula factory can operate in Vermont while minimizing its impact on the environment. They’re smart to sell it online too.

  2. Way Out Wax True Organics candles are great! I especially love the Sol Tranquility blend….mmm!

    Have you used Vermont Organics Liquid Sunshine? I’ve had it under my sink for awhile now, almost full because it leaves lots of spots on glass/dishes…but I think I’ll try it on laundry and see what happens! Thanks for reminding me about it 🙂 I REALLY like their Liquid Sunshine Spray & Wipe. It smells so fresh…makes the kitchen smell great 🙂

    Lots of great things coming out of Vermont!

    • Hello there Fig + Sage 🙂
      Yes, there are so many great organic products in Vermont it is hard to choose!
      Sorry to hear about the spots. I’m glad you wrote in. I fell in love with the purity the Liquid Sunshine ingredients. It is hard to find those products with both pure ingredients and perfect results when it comes to cleaning. Often it is the very ingredients that aren’t so great that are helping with things like spotting, or lightening, or disinfecting. Let us know what you’ve chosen for dish soap! I am using Dr. Bronner’s peppermint right now which I love. Let me know how Vermont Organics Liquid Sunshine works for laundry!
