Our Mission

Dirt Locker® is dedicated to designing and manufacturing environmentally positive products used in agriculture and landscaping that save water, stop erosion, and protect plants, all while made domestically from recycled plastic. The patented Dirt Locker® is a hillside terracing system fabricated from 100% recycled HDPE plastic. Each Dirt Locker® saves the equivalent of 13 plastic milk jugs from entering landfills and oceans. The company's values are to be environmentally involved, provide high-quality, affordable products made domestically, be easily assembled, and require no special skills or tools. The Dirt Locker® system creates a series of level, terraced cells for plants as well as individual hillside planters that will:

CAPTURE rainwater - reducing irrigation & saving water 

LOCK in topsoil & nutrients - stopping erosion & loss of fertilizer

PROVIDE optimal ecosystem - plants get more robust over time

CREATE a series of steps - allowing safe hillside access

Green Initiatives

The Dirt Locker® is ecologically friendly in several ways, but at its core, is constructed from 100% recycled, High Density Polyethylene (HDPE). Where single use plastic gets recycled, repurposed, and reused to grow your garden, not our landfills! (Feel free to request a certificate of authenticity for verification). The Dirt Locker® is also food-friendly because HDPE is one of the few plastics approved by the FDA for food storage and preparation. HDPE is found in milk jugs, plastic bags, and refillable bottles (labeled #2 plastic for recycling). The benefits of HDPE also include acting as an effective barrier to repel or hold in moisture, does not rot, resists insects and chemicals, creates no harmful emissions during production or during its use by the consumer. Most importantly, HDPE does not leak toxic chemicals into the soil or water so it is an excellent choice for fruit and vegetable gardens, and technically, it will last forever!

Each Dirt Locker® purchased saves the equivalent of 13 plastic milk jugs from entering our landfills and oceans. Each month, HillGrow Inc., owner of Dirt Locker®, helps recover nearly 100,000 plastic milk jugs monthly. Read about our global impact in the Group of Nations online publication 2021 (PG 134-135) & 2022 (PG 118-120) to learn more about our pledge to stop erosion, save water, recycle plastic while growing trees, plants and food all at the same time!

We also partner with Eden Reforestation Projects to plant 6 trees for every 10 Dirt Lockers sold!
