How are you recycling those pots and flats?

This summer Loblaws became one of the first major retailers to recycle pots and flats in Canada. Prior to the announcement the company worked to make its pots from over 50 per cent post-consumer recycled plastic.

Starting this year, customers were invited to return their rinsed pots, flats and even plastic tags to its garden centre between May and July. Through these efforts, Loblaws hopes to divert up to 600,000 kgs of plastic from landfills or approximately three million pots and flats.

What are you doing to recycle all that plastic that passes through your centre? Share your ideas and suggestions (or frustrations!) by commenting on our blog.
