100% recyclable plant pots look to increase sustainability in horticulture

Pöppelmann blue is a new strategic Pöppelmann-wide initiative which brings together projects involved in a continuous recycling economy. Using this slogan, Pöppelmann TEKU is now presenting new plant pots made from PCR which are 100 percent recyclable, thus ensuring a closed material cycle.

Greater sustainability is an important issue in horticulture, too. After all, consumers are increasingly opting for environmentally friendly and climate change-mitigating products.

The PÖPPELMANN blue initiative relies on a closed material cycle: TEKU presents plant pots made from Pöppelmann PCR

New Pöppelmann PCR recycling material
The plant pots are made out of Pöppelmann PCR: pure post-consumer recycled plastic. In other words, the plastic used for this purpose is 100 percent recyclable and originates exclusively from Der Grüne Punkt (Green Dot, dual system in Germany). Once a plant is pulled out of a pot, the pot is then put back into the recycling system so that the plastic is available to be used again. 

With the PCR range, Pöppelmann TEKU closes the material cycle at the same stage of the value added chain. The new Pöppelmann PCR recycling material is used for the most common plant pots in the VCG and VCH series. Additional series are planned to follow soon.

Pöppelmann blue – Company-wide initiative
The new PCR plant pots are part of the Pöppelmann blue initiative. Under the banner, the plastics specialist brings together under this banner numerous projects across the business which are committed to a continuous recycling economy.
