Molbak's makes recycling impact

   Molbak's nursery was lauded by the King County Solid Waste Division for plans to recycle 145,000 square feet of plastic from two-thirds of their greenhouses this year. In addition, Molbak's had eliminated the need for an unecessary foil sleeve placed on plants by distributors, by ordering plants directly from wholesalers. Molbak's also makes extensive use of the Industrial Materials Exchange (IMEX) to search out those who need some of their used materials.
