Recycle Plastic Garden Waste into Crude Oil

I read today at Project Green Industry about as company called Agri-Plas Inc. who is converting unwanted agricultural plastics into crude oil and shipping it to a refinery for commercial processing. I am so proud to be part of an industry that is not satisfied to rest our our already green laurels, and is instead working hard to make an ever bigger environmental difference in what we do.

Agri-Plas operates in Oregon and accepts many types of plastics including nursery pots and trays, ground cover, seed sacks, plastic binder twine, triple-rinsed pesticide containers and greenhouse film. It sounds like the operation is expanding quickly….visit Project Green Industry and Agri-Plas for more information about how you might be able to turn you pots into heat.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
