Why WeedGuard Plus?
We all know that every product we buy consumes energy and resources. So each of us uses land worldwide by consuming goods or services. Like all resources, the earth’s available surface area is limited. At the same time, the soil worldwide is threatened by erosion, pollution and sealing. A situation that is exacerbated by climate change in many places.
Plastic waste in particular pollutes water cycles and affects natural ecosystems. Microplastics enter the food chain and endanger health. Plastic is not only found in water cycle and oceans. Through the use of plastic in agriculture and horticulture, among other things, plastic parts also find their way into our soil. It is estimated that, depending on location, the plastic pollution of soils is many times higher than the pollution of the seas.
As a company in the paper processing industry, we asked ourselves what our contribution to a healthier environment could be. This is how our product WeedGuard Plus was created. A biodegradable paper weed blocker for commercial and organic farms, landscapers and home gardeners as an alternative to black plastic film.
