Sustainable plant pots, trays and growing systems
Under the umbrella of the PÖPPELMANN blue® initiative, which bundles all our activities for a closed material loop, we develop sustainable plant pots that completely close the material loop. That's why the plastic for our plant pots in the Circular360 category comes directly from the yellow bag and ends up there again. This is how we take responsibility for our products.
The TEKU® 4-level classification categorises our plant pots
The plant pots from this product range are at the top of the new TEKU® 4 level classification – and for good reason: As the name suggests, in the product life they circulate completely 360 degrees back to the beginning, from production, use and disposal to kerbside recycling in the material loop. For these pots – developed as part of our corporate initiative PÖPPELMANN blue® – we have already completely closed the material loop.
Plastic accounts for at least 80 % of the pots composition and this comes 100 % from household kerbside recycling collections as certified by the RAL quality mark.
The plant pots in this series are 100 % kerbside recyclable. For production we use PCR plastic which has been sourced from European countries including Germany. However, this recycled plastic is not necessarily from household waste, but also from other suitable disposed products such as garden furniture. These plant pots are available in the colours PCR Recyclable taupe/grey and PCR Recyclable terracotta/grey.
The plant pots in this series are 100 % suitable for kerbside recycling and thus reutilisation: This enables them to set a starting point for the material cycle. They are made from a mix of materials consisting of PCR (although not necessarily from household collections), PIR and virgin material. There is a wide range of recycling-specific colour choices.
The plant pots in this series meet all Pöppelmann quality requirements. They are made of PIR and/or virgin material.
