Plastic use in Horticulture
The latest news and updates on issues surrounding the effort to minimise waste of and use of plastic products in the horticulture industry.
Suppliers and growers say 2019 could be the year of volume plastic alternative use, or greater closed-loop plastic pot and tray recycling, after 2018 saw a surge in interest in plastic reduction.
Hillier Nurseries is among growers to introduce taupe kerbside recyclable plant pot, replacing the old black plastic pot.
Petition website change.org is set to host a campaign to "force the retail horticulture industry to change it's use of plastic pots".
