Our Green Programs

Plastic Pot Recycling: As of 2013, we will no longer be able to offer plastic pot recycling at our garden center. The recycling center that we worked with have discontinued their plastic pot recycling programs.

We encourage you to check with your residential recycling service to see if they offer recycling of plastic nursery containers. If you know of any residential services for plastic pot recycling in the Twin Cities area, please let us know (763) 428-2061 or malmborgs@geraniumsbygeorge.com.

Malmborg's is committed to practices that protect the environment and reduce waste, and we are continually making improvements that help us fulfill this commitment. Here is what we are doing right now:

  • Rainwater collection and reuse (approx. 700,000 gallons per year)
  • Recycling of plastic greenhouse covering
  • Recycling used plastic greenhouse containers
  • Cardboard recycling
  • Office paper recycling
  • Aluminum can, glass & plastic bottle recycling
  • Electric carts with no emissions
  • Natural/Organic Products department in the retail store
  • Switching to a new nursery pot with less plastic
