As a company we have decided to start the roll out of new silver/grey, kerbside recyclable, 3 litre pots that are made from post-consumer waste. We believe that in doing this we are joining with other growers to do our bit for the environment and reduce the amount of plastic making its way to landfill. The advantage of using a pot made from post-consumer waste compared to a pot made from virgin plastic reduces the need for new plastic to be used.
Over the next few months we will also be reviewing the use of our black 3 litre carry trays, as the vast majority of our customers do not display their plants in these trays and they are just thrown away.
We are yet to make a completely final decision on our 1 litre range, however we can go as far as saying we will certainly be moving away from black pots over the course of next year. As we are sure you can understand, the changeover to kerbside recyclable pots has all come around very quickly and production of some lines has already begun for next year, therefore the roll out of these pots will not be instant however we do hope to have all production changed over by the end of 2019.
If you wish to discuss this new step forward in more detail, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
