Sow ‘n Sow's gorgeous new Pop-Up Planters - a foldable origami-style recycled planter pot, are made from used flight safety cards, along with other manufacturing offcuts and used consumer products.
Sow 'n Sow has teamed up for 3 Pop-Up Planter Pot styles featuring hand-painted acrylic artwork by Newcastle based artist Jackie Anderson, to create the first foldable waterproof planter pots to enter the market.
The material used to make Sow ‘n Sow Pop-Up Pots is 100 percent recycled non-toxic polypropylene - the only Australian-made plastic sheet that is 100 percent recycled and is 100 per cent recyclable. It is also Carbon Neutral certified by the Carbon Reduction Institute.
Michelle Brady, the founder of Sow ‘n Sow said, with plastic waste levels increasing, it’s more important than ever before to rethink waste and move towards a circular economy.
“BY MANUFACTURING OUR Pop-Up POTS FROM 100 PER CENT RECYCLED MATERIALS, WE’RE ACTIVELY DIVERTING WASTE FROM LANDFILL AND USING IT TO CREATE NEW DURABLE AND USABLE CONSUMER PRODUCTS. THIS KEEPS THE MATERIALS CIRCULATING IN THE LOOP FOR LONGER TO MAXIMISE AND EXTRACT AS MUCH VALUE FROM IT AND MINIMISE ITS ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT.”
Sow ‘n Sow has calculated the equivalent plastic waste each pot saves from landfill and through the sales of the new Jackie Anderson Pop-Up Pot collection, Sow ‘n Sow will divert the equivalent waste of 22,500 plastic 600ml bottles from landfill. (Small Pop-Up Pot = 1 x plastic 600ml bottle saved from landfill Medium Pop-Up Pot = 1 1/2 x plastic 600ml bottles saved from landfill Large Pop-Up Pot = 2 x plastic 600ml bottles saved from landfill.)
