Growing Strawberries in Plastic
Background and source of our materials

Our Ekoroof tile is made from recycled agricultural plastic that is normally used by farms to protect their crops. If you think back to the last time you saw a field that was recently planted, you may have noticed long sheets of plastic covering a vast area of the field. These plastic sheets help to protect the young crops from extreme heat and sunlight, and also help to maintain the moisture content of the soil constant, as well as helping to keep pests out and minimize the use of pesticides. Another application for this plastic is in the form of bags. A translucent bag will be placed around a new fruit on the tree. The fruit will grow inside the bag, achieving the same goals as the plastic sheets laid on the ground.

the problem

A great majority of the plastic used in agriculture is not reusable. The plastic sheets laid on the ground are torn by the growing crops or during harvest. Bags are also ripped and torn when the fruits are harvested.

Waste Plastic Mound

Recycling this film is very difficult because after use, the material is contaminated with plant matter, soil, water, fertilizers, and pesticides. It must first be washed and cleaned thoroughly, dried, and processed into pellets - a costly process.

Some recycling facilities don't accept this agricultural plastic waste because they do not have the necessary equipment to process it. Thus, it is sometimes stockpiled, dumped, buried, or illegally burned - in each case causing tremendous harmful waste.

The solution

High-quality, purpose-engineered Ekoroof plastic tile!

We have developed and patented a way to effectively process agricultural films in just a few, simple and integrated steps! The plastic is then mixed with several additives that make up our patented formula, and shaped in the form of classic Spanish Tile.

Dark Bronze Ekoroof

Ekoroof plastic tile has been tested by independent laboratories in order to conform to the strictest quality standards required by the Miami-Dade (Florida) building and HVHZ (hurricane) code.

As Ekoroof is very light, the product can be installed on just about any roof, without modification to the roofing structure at your home or business. The installation process is very quick and easy.

Though the match is almost exact, due to differences between computer monitors, printers, and the recycled content of our tile, we cannot guarantee a 100% exact match to the colors shown.
