The post above from the Manila Bulletin was shared to SNAP Hydroponics Growers numerous times. It’s a disappointing picture but it is not all gloomy.
One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.
SNAP Hydroponics growers has been actively seeking and picking up these piles of styrofoam boxes for use in their SNAP Hydroponics setups or for sale to other enthusiasts. In doing so, SNAP growers not only keeping trash off the streets, they are maximising the utility we get out of these styrofoam boxes.
A Community Effort
Below are just a few of the conversations our group had about the abundance of the much sought after standard sized styroboxes that SNAP Hydroponics Growers use. As mentioned in a previous post about the availability of grape boxes in the Philippines, the end of December (the last “ber” month) marks the end of the year’s supply of imported grapes from the United States. SNAP Hydroponics enthusiasts are preparing for the eventual shortage of supply and soaring prices of these styrofoam boxes.
That’s all for today. Thank you to everyone who collected these boxes for use in their hydroponics garden. May this year bring you happiness and bountiful harvests.
