DOPA plant-based plant pot

DOPA plant-based plant pot

The horticulture business: Millions of vegetables, herbs, flowers, plants, trees, bulbs and seeds are cultivated and transported every year. Mainly in plastic pots and plastic trays. Thanks to the products available via the Panics’ DOPA brand, Plantics B.V. changed the status quo.

Grow, crack, plant
DOPA is a plant pot made of paper, treated with special resin, and developed by Plantics. This organic resin is made of 100 per cent natural and locally available raw materials. This ensures that the DOPA plant pot is biodegradable and therefore can be composted at home. In line with the unique grow-crack-plant principle, consumers can plant the entire product, plant plus pot, in the earth. The DOPA pot breaks down after a while and becomes one with the earth again. Nice and easy and zero waste. As a result, DOPA contributes to a sustainable environment and the circular economy.

DOPA is a unique Dutch innovation from Plantics.
