PAPER IS NOT JUST PAPER
Using paper pots is your guarantee for a safe environment. The papers pose no harm to the environment, and the paper pots will decompose in the soil when planted directly in the field.
With paper pots, you decrease your carbon footprint while also optimizing production due to easier handling and less waste – meaning that you have not plastic pots to handle, remove, pick up, or dispose of.
Studies also show that you get up to 40% faster planting.
