Black is beautiful - recycled nursery containers are sustainable

In the new wave of branded plants, growers are looking for ways to make their plants stand out by using unique, colorful pots with prominent placement of graphics.  While this practice generates consumer excitement and can be a powerful persuasion to purchase these plants, the pots are generally not re-usable, and become clutter in the garage before heading to the landfill or recycling center.

We save tens of thousands of pots every year from the fate of under-use.  We firmly believe that economic sustainability and environmental sustainability are two sides of the same coin.  Although these black beauties may have some scuffs and scrapes, they carry the same badge of honor as your re-useable grocery bags and steel water bottles.  Do your part to save the planet and buy plants grown in used pots!
