Sustainable packaging in Australian horticulture

As any gardener knows, the polypropylene pots used to transport seedlings and plants from growers to garden beds across Australia, are not currently recycled through household recycling collections. As a result, they often end up stacked at the back of the shed, because very few gardeners want to send them to landfill.

In an effort to increase the recovery and recycling of this versatile material, GCP and APCO are joining forces with GIA and the horticulture industry to design and establish a national collection system, aimed at recovering this valuable material for recycling back into new pots.

They will be organizing an online workshop from 10am-1:00pm on Friday, 19 June 2020 to discuss these matters.
