Bruce Thompson is a horticulturist working in waste management for council, and in this episode we explore why plastic pots have a negative impact on the environment, how to properly recycle them, what alternatives are on the market, and whether or not we need legislation in the industry to level the playing field and make plastic pots a thing of the past.
