Reducing Our Consumption of Plastics


The greenhouse industry relies heavily on the use of plastic. Plastic pots, trays and greenhouse coverings have been essential to our existence. As the price of oil rises, so does the price of plastic. As a result, we have begun to retrieve and reuse used trays from the stores that we service. Also, we have switched from disposable plug trays (trays that are used for propagation) to plug trays that can be used many times. As we modernized our facilities, we are gradually changing some of the greenhouse coverings to glass that does not need to be replaced as often as plastic does.
