New is that the plant is grown in the sustainable Bolayo cultivation pot instead of a plastic cultivation pot. This pot consists of 100% natural raw materials and is biodegradable. Replacing the plastic cultivation pot reduces the use of fossil raw materials, prevents plastic litter and also reduces the CO2 contribution of the plant. The innovative Bolayo pot proves to be a responsible replacement for the plastic pot in various crops. The pot withstands the process of potting and cultivation and ultimately ensures a beautiful and natural product for the consumer.

The pot in combination with the Physalis Peruviana, which offers the consumer the opportunity to grow the healthy Cape Gooseberry in their own garden, is a unique concept. Both in terms of the plant and the material for cultivation. The sales concept of the plastic-free Cape Gooseberry is completed with a plastic-free label and a cardboard Ecoclicktray. As a result, all plastic elements have been replaced for sustainable alternatives to natural materials. This concept is proof that the plastic-free plant is possible for various crops.
