Plastic containers have supported extraordinary growth and vitality across the U.S. Green Industry, but most garden plastic remains primarily landfill-bound. As public concern rises over plastic pollution, what options do public gardens have to help turn the tide of horticulture's special waste stream? This webinar opens the question of how known and new partnerships might find sustainable solutions to deal with the issues with plastic pots. We hope to launch a dialogue in our public garden sector about potential collaborations toward more substantial and even public-facing options to tackle this waste stream.
