Why Gardeners Put Trash in Garden Pots
We love beautiful flowers and plants. Many of us keep flower pots and planters in our windows, on our porches or patios. We enjoy being an important part of the life of a beautiful plant.
Gardeners usually believe this is an admirable act of recycling, i.e., reusing otherwise discarded materials that would have ended up in a landfill or worse. Unfortunately, plastic materials do not decompose. All of the plastic that has ever been made is still with us on earth. Plastic materials placed in the bottom of a flower pot will eventually, inevitably end up in the waste stream adding to the earth’s plastic pollution burden.
When you no longer need your Fill & Flourish Inserts, just dispose of them by burying them or discarding them. They are guaranteed to completely return to their biological components of carbon dioxide and water. No plastic. No unsightly litter. Nothing added to the waste stream. You can sleep well, knowing you’ve helped address our world of plastic pollution.
