Haxnicks new range of Bamboo Pots and Seed Trays has won Best Garden Care - Accessories Award in the prestigious GLEE Gardening Industry Awards.
Sustainable bamboo, rice and natural resin is used to make the pots and trays. The range is BPA free, compostable and designed to help you reduce the petrochemical plastic in your greenhouse. It’s estimated that 500 million plastic plant pots are sold every year. The majority end up in landfill or are incinerated. Very little is recycled as there are few facilities to do so. A large amount of fossil fuel is used in the production of plastic pots which furthermore take around 500 years to decompose. Haxnicks Bamboo Pots once broken up in active compost will decompose in 6 to 12 months. Quite a difference! https://www.haxnicks.co.uk/garden-products/new-products
GLEE is a trade exhibition for the gardening industry. 500 leading UK and international wholesale garden suppliers exhibit so that every gardening retailer; big, small, online or on the high-street can source the very best products for you.
Damian Cardozo of Haxnicks says. "The Products that win at GLEE are those that really move the industry forward and offer the gardener what they need. The appetite is there for sustainable pots so it is the right time for this product.
