Ellepot introduces paper for organic plant propagationTrue organic, high-yield cultivation is now a reality, thanks to a new all-natural paper for young plant propagation from Ellepot A/S. Ellepot Organic is the world’s first certified, sustainably harvested and 100% bio-degradable product.
Natural and certified
Ellepot Organic is the first input material to be certified for any use in organic production. Its approval by the UK’s Soil Association assures conformity to the highest standards of environmental and social responsibility. Besides the UK, which is the first market where the product has been certified, Ellepot is now also seeking the paper’s approval from similar certification bodies in other countries around the world.
The paper Ellepot Organic features a strong, durable non-woven material that acts as both a soil conditioner and a container for the substrate: Uniquely, both the paper and its non-woven content comprise of 100% natural products that are fully compostable and biodegradable.

It is wholly manufactured out of wood fibres from Scandinavian forests that are grown according to standards set by the Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC).
Ellepot Organic is ideal for products and processes where sustainable supply must be demonstrated at every point in the supply chain. Its Soil Association Certification simplifies the documentation process, reducing the time and costs of bringing a wide range of produces to market. It is suitable for all plant propagation, field planting and especially the farming of organic vegetables.
