Landscape Manitoba is a proud supporter of the “Bloomin’ Good Idea” closed loop recycling initiative. This type of recycling takes your old plastic product and recycles it back into the same thing. The argument for closed loop is that it is a more sustainable system because it a) takes less resources to create the same product and b) it creates a cycle of sustainability because the product created will also be recyclable.
It is easy to take part by simply dropping off your used garden containers at a participating garden centre in one of their bins. They accept three plastic types: #2 Polyethylene, #5 Polypropylene, and #6 Polystyrene. Bloomin’ Good Idea currently operates only in Manitoba, but there are other closed loop recycling initiatives around Canada and we hope it catches on!
