Angelina Jolie And Others Can Now Make Their Flowers Even More Eco-Friendly
Angelina Jolie is well known not just for her acting ability but for the good deeds she does for various organizations. If Jolie is environmentally friendly as well, she could make her flowers and plants even friendlier for the earth. A new line of flowerpots has just hit the market, and they're sure to draw the eyes...and wallets...of all those who do what they can to keep the earth clean and healthy.
The pots, called EcoForm pots, are a new line of beautifully designed containers being sold by a company based in Santa Rosa, California. These pots are earth friendly because they're made from grain husks, like rice hulls. The binders used are starch-based and water-soluble and all additives are biodegradable. With ingredients like those, the pots are completely biodegradable, so they make good environmental sense.
They also make good economical sense, because they're durable, too. The pots are meant to last for a period of five years. At the end of that time, they decompose naturally and form a rich organic material with a PH of 7.
Springwise newsletter, a British company that keeps track of international consumer trends, said of the pots: "Combining sustainability with eco-chic, the pots have a smooth finish and come in a variety of shapes and natural colors, in both decorative and grower lines."
The EcoForms pot makers describe the pots as "a smart and sustainable choice for gardeners and growers alike." They claim the pots can be used both inside and outside and that they're a great alternative to plastic pots because, like plastic, they're also lightweight.
As the pots draw more attention and become more common, consumers around the world are sure to be looking for them at their florists and in stores. Why not be a step ahead of the crowd? Order a pot from the company and bring it in to your florist to be filled with a gorgeous arrangement. You can enjoy the arrangement in your own home or give it as a gift to one of your earth-wise friends.
Surely big-name stars like Angelina Jolie who are concerned about the environment will help fuel this trend for biodegradable plant and flower containers.
