For On Gardening, I'm Stan De Freitas, Mr. Green Thumb. The earth box, now this is great technology from the ground up. One of the beautiful things about the earth box is that it's made from recycled plastic. You've always wondered where does all that plastic go that you've taken and you've recycled through all the recycling bins over the years, ah, here it is. They come of course in black, they come in this Terra Cotta, they come in white, they come in a bunch of different colors. But it does do my heart a lot of good to know that we've got something that has been recycled with all that plastic that you've used and that it's great technology. And we talked about the filler tube, which it has, it's got the screen here. All of this material is made from recycled plastic. The screen's important because it gives you good water movement through the base and air movement, and that's important. If you can get near a perfect soil, and a perfect medium, you're going to have perfect results or at least as perfect as you can. Having the filler tube is important because we're going to make sure we get the water down to the base and it waters from the bottom up, and that's important. Earth box, great technology.
