The durable properties of cardboard acts as a shield to protect the delicate potted plant. The smooth cardboard surface is a prime surface to print engaging text to entice green finger enthusiasts and novice gardeners alike to “Pick Me”. Aside from the cardboard plant pot holder’s robust and aesthetic qualities, the design enhances the gardeners shopping experience. The perforated handhold on the shield makes it convenient to carry an individual plant around without having to worry getting your hands dirty. Once your plant has found its home within your garden, you can continue to do your part for the environment as the plant pot holder can be fully recycled.
