The PlantPaper system
A PLANTPAPER Paperpot
Our Paperpot is a biodegradable paper sleeve that wraps growing media, replacing conventional plastic pot or bag. The Paperpot goes with the plant to the field or garden, where the roots will easily grow through the paper. Differently from other papers in the market, our paper doesn't leave any microplastic behind when it biodegrades. Our certificates are our guarantee.
PlantPaper’s eco-friendly Paperpot provides optimal growing conditions for your plants. The unique and pioneering open paper pattern, provides better airflow to the root system and allows the fine roots to grow without restrictions. This creates stronger and healthier plants with reduced growing time in the greenhouse and longer sales window. PlantPaper gives you the opportunity to deliver the best quality to your customers. PlantPaper integrates seamlessly and can be adapted to all Paperpot systems currently available on the market. PlantPaper U1 is 100% biodegradable and chemical-free. Furthermore, PlantPaper U1 has achieved the certification of OK compost and welds together without the use of glue.

Important differences between Degradable, Biodegradable and Compostable
Degradable simply means that something breaks down into smaller pieces over time. Today, most Paperpots sold in the horticulture market contains plastic fibres that will degrade into microplastic. It is invisible to the human eye, but it is still plastic pollution.
Biodegradable is also degrading, but it does something more: It is broken down by the metabolism of micro-organisms, leading to the production of CO2, H2O, methane, biomass and mineral salts, depending on the environmental conditions of the process.
When something is compostable, it means that it biodegrades. But it will completely degrade within a certain amount of time, under certain conditions, leaving no harmful residues - such as microplastics or heavy metals in the soil. Composting has many beneficial purposes, including improvement and fertilization of the soil.
Because of its unique origin from natural and 100% biobased components, our paper has obtained OK compost and OK biobased certifications. These are the highest certifications you will find in the industry. All raw materials used in our paper come from reliable suppliers in Europe. These raw materials are natural, biodegradable and environmentally friendly.
