Product: 3 EcoForms Nova Flower Pots (ebony)
Value: $12, but really...priceless

Description: Since it's garden month, we thought we'd give away some house favorites that we've given away each summer in our Flowerbox Awards posts. These pots are NOT made of plastic. They are made from renewable grain husks, which is long lasting, durable and lightweight, but WILL biodegrade in our lifetime. Check this out: Only after they have been discarded into a commercial or municipal landfill facility will decomposition take place. They then break down into nutrient-rich organic matter with a PH value of 7.0.

EcorForms Pitch:

Say good-bye to ugly plastic pots! Sweetwater Nursery LLC is happy to introduce a smart alternative: EcoForms™. Perfect for home and garden, these all-natural pots are made from by-products of renewable and sustainable crops. They contain no wood or petroleum ingredients, do not deplete natural resources, and decompose in the landfill. Suddenly, gardening is both easy and guilt-free.

These products are available in a wide variety of natural colors and shapes to complement every décor. Strong, durable and lightweight, EcoForms™ are ideal for plants that need to be moved often, lasting five years under average conditions. Even when exposed to constant high humidity, their water- resistant surface remains clean and smooth.
Manufacturing Process

EcoForms™ are made from grain husks (primarily rice hulls) and natural binding agents (starch-based, water-soluble binders and biodegradable additives). No pollutants are used or produced at any stage of the manufacturing process. And because all scraps are recycled in the production process, no materials are wasted. Only a small amount of water is used in the binding formula, and the organic pigments are environmentally friendly. Heat and pressure cement the ingredients to produce EcoForms™.
Operations and Factory Information

Sweetwater Nursery maintains a close working relationship with our manufacturing partners. The EcoForms™ family-owned manufacturing facility is operated with extraordinary efficiency and workmanship. The working conditions at the factory are clean, efficient, and respectful of the employees.
