where do all the pots go?

These days, we mainly use thermoformed pots. They are economical on plastic and surprisingly durable. They get reused once or maybe twice after a washing which is more fun in summer than in winter. Although all are capable of being recycled, only the grey, blue and ‘taupe’ ones can be recognised by recycling machines.

Our new pots are grey or blue (but not taupe) from Poppelmann and are recycled and recyclable. For more information follow the link below (this will not tell you why anyone would chose the colour ‘taupe’ for any pot – I suppose the idea is of an earth colour but shiny grey-brown plastic can only look like what it is – best to stick to colours which don’t disguise what they are!
