I’d like to see this in all garden centres, plant nurseries. I very much doubt supermarket suppliers will take this on board, although some are reducing excess plastic (for instance cardboard printed labelling, instead of plastic)
Most pots ‘go home’ and either get reused until they break, or in many instances, discarded, or placed incorrectly into recycling systems.
“POSIpot is a revolution in how we view plastic in horticulture.
When you buy a plant, you also buy a plastic pot… the pot is then your responsibility even if you have only used it to transport from shop to immediate planting”
What is the POSIpot© made from?
“Quite simply it is made from a specialist, easily compostable, UK
produced, unbleached recycled cardboard. It has a slight sheen which
slows water absorption from the interior which enables plants to sit
outside of planting for about a week.”
Why do we need POSIpots?
“POSIpot allows us to save 100’s of millions of pots being pointlessly
made only to eventually be sent to landfill or incineration..its that
If you have excess plant pots and your not going to reuse them, list them on the many social media groups. Someone will want them.
