When comparing flexible grow bags with rigid containers, the poly bag version clearly shows that “less is more”. In this blog we will explain exactly what this means. And how the use of plastic material is beneficial to both the grower and the environment.
Flexible Grow Bags versus Rigid Containers
There are so many benefits associated with plastic nursery bags, that once tried, they oftentimes become the new growth medium for growers.
This comparison shows the main differences between poly grow containers and rigid pots. For instance, because they are so lightweight, they save on a lot of energy.
Why Use Plastic Material in Flexible Grow Bags?
So if you think that plastic is bad for the environment, please think about it twice. Looking at it closely, you will find that polyethylene material has many advantages.
‘Less is More’
- With less plastic, more pots are produced with the same amount of material than rigid pots.
- Less material means a lesser carbon footprint during production.
- With their lower price tag, you will be able to buy more flexible containers.
- Also, you will save on storage space, because they fold flat. So you can store more of them.
