Attempting to Live a Sustainable Lifestyle in St. Louis

Environmentally friendly decisions are tough

Recycled our pile of plastic plant containers last week August 21, 2008

I’m always impressed when I run across an organization who’s doing something really good for the environment.  Thus, when I finally broke down and took our plastic containers (from the plants we installed last year) over to the botanical gardens I was really surprised by the setup.   It was actually the recycling containers I was most impressed with.   They were some mash-up of a dumpster, trailer and moving truck.   I suppose the advantage is that when they’re filled a large garbage truck isn’t required to haul away the goods.  See pics below (camera phone pic):

The location is a bit difficult to find if you’re not familiar w/ the area, but it’s right across the street from the big monsanto building near the botanical gardens (see link).  And maybe in the end, you can purchase some landscaping timbers made from your plastic pots, though I’d rather just see nurseries re-use plastic pots.
