Let’s come clean about sustainable farming’s dirty little secret; it’s heavily reliant on plastic! Plastic products have become a staple in all aspects of production, including: drip irrigation, greenhouse poly, floating row cover, insect and weed barriers, trellis materials and harvest totes, among others. No matter what your relationship is with plastic, we should all agree that whenever possible it’s best to use recycled products, strive to maximize material lifespan, and recycle or re-appropriate products after their initial intended life is up.
