Made from renewable and sustainable plant by-products, EcoForms are the environmentally friendly alternative to plastic pots. Our tests have shown that plants grow better in EcoForms than in traditional plastic pots due to their insulating design, which leads to thriving, healthy plants. EcoForms pots contain no wood or petroleum ingredients and do not deplete natural or edible resources. When used outdoors, EcoForms pots will last at least five years and even longer when used indoors. They are intended for use above the ground, and show no damage when exposed to freezing or thawing conditions.
EcoForms pots are made from rice hulls and natural binding agents, which are starch-based, water-soluble, and bio-degradable. No pollutants are used or produced at any stage of the manufacturing process. And, because all scraps are recycled in the production process, no materials are wasted. Only a small amount of water is used in the binding formula, and the organic pigments are environmentally friendly. Heat and pressure bind the ingredients to produce EcoForms pots.
EcoForms maintains a close working relationship with our manufacturing partners. The EcoForms manufacturing facility is family-owned, and the working conditions are clean, efficient, and respectful of the employees.
EcoForms pots will keep their shape and clean surface until the end of their functional life. Only after they have been discarded into a municipal compost or landfill facility will decomposition take place. They will break down into nutrient-rich organic matter with a PH value of 7.0.
