becausewecare™ has developed a range of compostable and biodegradable plant pots that enable you to drop your new plant into the ground without having to remove the plastic casing. Simply pop it into the ground, and watch the pot add nutrients to your soil as it biodegrades, giving your plant a healthy start to life in your garden.
For horticulturalists and plantation developers, these pots are ideal. They easily overcome many of the common problems associated with retaining soil around the roots during planting. Once in the soil, becausewecare™ seedling pots biodegrade into natural humus, CO2 and water.
- Fill our certified compostable seedling pot with potting soil.
- Sow seeds accordingly.
- Once the seed has germinated and is ready, plant the seedling along with the whole pot.
- Insert the pot into the soil and cover it with more soil if necessary.
About materials used
becausewecare™ compostable bags are made from polymer resins, mainly consisting of cornstarch. They are engineered to provide similar characteristics to that of the regular plastic bag made from non-renewable resources.
These compostable bags are made with cornstarch, an annually renewable resource, which unlike trees are grown and harvested in a single season. becausewecare™ sources corn from Northern China where the abundance of rainfall means that no irrigation is required, saving energy and water. They only use “third-grade” corn, which is not suitable for human or animal consumption.
Because these bioplastics are made with organic plant materials, they break down within 45 days in a compost environment – about the same time as a dry leaf – offering the most practical and eco-friendly solution existing today.
At becausewecare™, even the most resistant bioplastic products take a maximum of 90 days to decompose completely in the right environmental conditions. These bioplastics need moisture, microbes and soil before they start to break down.
