The development in horticulture to make more use of sustainable products is continuing. Tesselaar Astroemeria has recently started using recycled flower sleeves!
Karolien Tesselaar: “Our sleeve protects our flowers against damage during transport, but is removed fairly quikly by the florists or consumers. It’s just a shame that we use new material for that. We came into contact with Global Pack through our supplier Mertens. Global Pack is part of Koninklijke Paardekooper Group, which in turn is a member of the Circular Plastics Alliance. We were faced with the choice to switch to 100% recycled plastic. Despite the many developments in the packaging industry, we are a bit of a pioneer”.
