Ecotainers: New to me
A trip to the Landscape Alberta Nursery Trades (LANTA) trade show last week and I found another "new" biodegradable pot. Ecotainers are round pots made of Plastarch (PSM). They have only been on the market for two years so there are no long term studies yet. I guess I'll have to give them a try. They are marketed as fully biodegradable and compostable. Of course my compost outdoors is frozen solid this time of year but I wonder if my worms would eat them? I think I will throw a pot in my worm bin just to see. To find out who is selling them in our area contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
