Plant Ties / Tree Wrap

Everything in your garden should biodegrade!


There are all kinds of ties, wraps, nets, straps, harnesses and wires for holding plants to stakes during shipping, at the wholesaler/retailer, or in the garden. When conventional petroleum-based plastic is used, the ensuing broken ties become trash, litter, or waste. If a biodegradable plastic was used the discarded ties and wrap would eventually become plant food and soil enhancements.

Green Dot has several bioplastic formulations that could make ties of different types – soft, stretchy, rigid, or brightly colored. The ties could be simple, tape-like, strips or more complicated molded shapes. Tape in a wider format could be used as a tree wrap or bark protector.
