There’s nothing more infuriating than sowing some seeds or planting something in the garden, and then forgetting exactly what it is! With the current concerns over the build-up of plastics in the environment, many gardeners are looking for replacements for gardening products made from plastic. These strong, bamboo plant markers are the perfect alternative.
They are made from sustainable bamboo fibre and rice starch, firmly held together with a resin made from naturally occurring organic compounds. This material is free from petroleum-based plastics and BPA (bisphenol A), a chemical that is used to make certain plastics and resins, and found in polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins.
The Bamboo Plant Markers are durable and will last for around three to five years, and can be used indoors and outside. They are easy to write on with either pencil or marker pen. After their useful life is over, they are compostable and will biodegrade. Composting usually takes six to 12 months. Breaking it into small pieces before adding to your compost heap will help speed up this composting process.
