Our Ploy Sleeve (PART-B) is manufactured from virgin resins to ensure even light transmission to the vine and UV stabilization to the Poly Sleeve. UV stabilization allows our Poly Sleeve to withstand the suns hash UV rays that might otherwise be affected by using recycled materials.
When the grow tube is no longer needed on the vine or orchard tree, it can be removed by slitting the poly sleeve (PART-B). Once removed, the poly sleeve (Part-B) can be recycled at any facility that accepts #4 recycling material. The polyester film (Part-A) can then be stored flat out of the sunlight for reuse on the next planting. Replacement poly sleeves can be purchased separately for a fraction of the cost of a new complete unit for those that recycle and reuse the inner sheet (Part-A).
