Recycling

Always remember to dispose of the grow boxes properly to reduce environmental impact. Here’s how.

Recyclable materials

All the materials can be disposed of in domestic household bins.

Return Packaging Scheme

Reuse is better than recycling. Inside the box you’ll find a plastic based instruction sheet which we prefer to see reused. If you collect a quantity of these we encourage these to be returned.

These can be returned inside the same box you recieve the greens in using our freepost return stickers.

Compostable substrate

The young seedlings are protected with compostable material, which keeps the box dry and the greens sturdy.
Once cut and cropped, our alternative to soil (a compostable substrate) can be chucked in food or garden waste bin.

We sow the greens into a natural pad made from renewable materials. The combination of Agar Agar and Wood Pulp creates a plant-based medium which feeds the seedling naturally. This negates any need to use fertiliser.

Environmental Growing Medium

We sow the greens into a natural pad made from renewable materials. With a combination of Agar Agar and Wood Pulp we’re using a plant based medium which naturally feeds the seedlings taking nitrogen from the Seaweed. This negates our need to use any fertilser extracted and processed from non-renewable sources.

Get more than Micros

Micros are a short-lived crop. They have the advantage of being quick to grow, but the life-span of the plant is cut short.
Sometimes you might want to get a little more from your plant. As we use a natural substrate, it can be placed on top of a pot of soil to grow them further. Simply thin the seedlings out prior to transplanting or use the remains of a pad once they’ve been cut.
