Royal Flora Holland ‘reprehensible’ for 21 years

The Plastic Soup Foundation has got hold of a study from 1996 in which the huge detrimental environmental impact – even then – of single-use potted plant trays is described. This shows that Royal Flora Holland has failed to address this problem for the last 21 years, choosing instead to explicitly continue to develop these trays.

The study from 1996, carried out by the Environmental Studies Centre of Leiden University, leaves no room for debate. A lot would be explained if the auction house would publish the findings of a recent study – carried out by Blonk Consultants – straight away: this report draws almost the same conclusion.

Hopefully it will lead to the realization that switching to multiple use trays would be a better choice for both the environment and the sector.
