Something as simple as a flowerpot may not seem like a force for change, add a self-watering reservoir to that pot, and you’ve got a whole new game, an environmentally friendly planter!
Self-watering (or sub-irrigated, as they’re also known) planters reduce water consumption by up to 80%, when compared with similar planters that are watered manually and do not have a reservoir.
That’s a nice savings for anyone, but the real impact comes when that 80% is multiplied by the large number of planters used by cities, park systems and developers. Used on a large scale, self-watering planting containers save thousands of gallons of water per year. This is the main advantage of the environmentally friendly and beautifully design Desert Planters.
Reduced water consumption isn’t the only environmentally friendly benefit of our products. Sub-irrigated planters also:
Dramatically cut the need for watering down to once a week or once a month (learn more).
Decrease the number of maintenance and watering rounds that grounds crews make.
Reduce the amount of fuel used to maintain landscaping.
Our planters provide another potent enviro-friendly benefit: They’re constructed of at least 60% recycled plastic. Over the past 15 years, use of our containers has diverted 500,000 pounds of plastics from landfills.
Lower the amount of landscaping-related pollution.
