Spotlight on SHUTTLE

Posted on December 5th, 2022 in The Sustainable Choice - Recycling Program

At East Jordan Plastics, we’re committed to continuously identifying new ways of bringing sustainable solutions to the horticulture industry. That includes developing innovative, reliable growing containers made from recycled materials. After all, we believe it’s our mission to do the right thing when it comes to sustainability.

That’s why many of our containers are made from a high percentage of post-consumer recycled plastic. This commitment to recycling and sustainability was the driving force behind our SHUTTLE product line that delivers the strength and stability you expect without sacrificing our mission of sustainability—all made right here in the USA.

Making it easy to fill, ship, and display a wide variety of plant products, our SHUTTLE pots and trays feature easy dispensing, co-extruded construction, dual-level drainage, and easy plant removal. Plus, 8-color offset printing and adhesive labeling capabilities help you move plants off shelves and into the lives of consumers everywhere.

Here’s a quick look at the entire line:

SHUTTLE POT® Flower Pots

With sturdy rims and shoulders for quick de-nesting and dispensing, our SHUTTLE POT® Flower Pots help you move more plants quicker than ever before. Featuring extra strength and stability, these co-extruded pots feature a dark inner layer that prevents light from harming delicate roots.
