20 Cell Natural Rubber Seed Tray
Natural Rubber - A Better Way
Yes, these trays are a bit more expensive. But why?
Unlike the plastic industry, which is controlled by a few massive multinationals, natural rubber is an entirely sustainable product grown by small farmers or plantations. Plastic Free Gardening sources only from suppliers whose plantations are certified not to have replaced natural forests. Due to the extremely low price of natural rubber, many rubber plantings are threatened by conversion to palm oil or beef production. So, when you buy our seed trays, you ensure the survival of a valuable natural resource.
Rubber trees are "tapped” by small farmers or plantation workers, in theory, providing an important source of revenue. However, at present, the price of natural rubber does not even cover the cost of production. But because we are members of the Fair Rubber Association, we pay our primary suppliers a Fair Trade premium - almost 40% above world market prices. This helps to improve the working and living conditions of the primary producers and ensure environmentally friendly sustainable production.
