By recycling leftover straw from wheat harvests to make shipping pallets, HP is helping halt deforestation, reduce air pollution and create new jobs for farmers.
After the wheat is harvested in farming communities in parts of rural China, the air is often so thick with smoke that roads become impassable and it’s hard to breathe. Farmers, inundated with leftover straw, typically torch the excess crop to dispose of it.
