EcoForms Sustainable Planters at Whole Foods

While running in for a bite to eat at a nearby Whole Foods, we stopped to check out this colourful collection of non-plastic garden pots manufactured from the husks of rice, other grains and starch-based, water-soluble binders and biodegradable additives. The ingredients almost sound better tasting than some of the healthy snacks inside the grocery chain...

So if these are eco-friendly and biodegradable (and also extremely lightweight for easy transport thanks to their husk composition), an immediate question that came to mind was how long these would last before breaking down? Ecoforms claims a five year lifespan, with resistance to damage from freezing/thawing and can be thrown right into the compost bin to become worm food. Five years isn't too bad considering it's made of bio-degradable matter, but we wish it was in the double digits, as we prefer to buy and keep for as long as possible. But we're think the EcoForms might make for a perfect gift potter for those folks who aren't apt to be gardeners or green thumbs, and you wanted to make them a temporary arrangement to last a few weeks/months. Check out all the details here or drop by a local Whole Foods.
