June 7, 2023
Flora Späth is a board member of Euro Plant Tray and an independent consultant for the horticulture industry. In her role at Euro Plant Tray Flora she works on replacing the current single-use plastic plant trays with a reusable tray that is rented out, is fully recyclable and can last for 10, 20 and even 40 years. The members of Euro Plant Tray are some of the largest DIY stores and key players from the flower industry in Europe. When the system is introduced, it will save over 40,000 tons of plastic every year, equivalent to 220,000 tons of CO2.
