From unwanted plastic plant pots, bottles and yoghurt pots to spent coffee cups and plastic found on beaches; waste is turned into fantastic and durable products to use and reuse, time and time again.
Its UK wide 'Pot-to-Product' scheme is a great example of how a circular economy works. Until now traditional recycling schemes have not been able to recycle pots because the cost of transporting light and often muddy material can be more than the value of the raw material. By designing and making new products from the recycled pots, it is are able to add value to the material. Garden Centres are used across the UK to act as collection hubs for the public.
