Hey does anyone shop @ an walmart that has changed to the Eco Freindly bags? They hold about 3.5 - 4gal soil and are Basically Blue smart pots for 25 cents.
:eek: :holysheep: Here is a couple pics of them. I got 4+gal soil in them! 100% POLYPROPYLENE and that is what they use to make smart pots.

Are they a cloth material?

Ya, It is the same material they use for smart pots. I live in Sacramento CA out of the 15 walmarts here only 4 or so are using them it is a test run I guess they are probably going to start using them all over one day.

Aside from Walmart, grocery stores usually have quite a few stacked up at the register. (At least they do where I am) It is a win/win for any store that carries them. People buy them to help stop global waste while companies make money both in selling the bag and in not handing out freebie bags.

I never thought about using them as pots though. Since they are made of cotton you can toss the whole thing right into your compost pile when your done with it. I smell a science experiment around the corner ...

Can we get a pic? If they are like 25 cents a bag this is a no brained...take a buck, buy 4 and run 4 beans in them...please document it though...sounds like fun. There is a guy over at cannetics growing in the stuffing from pillows or Teddy bears I believe as his medium. Very cool.

I've tried both, the grocery bags are cheaper, but start to break down after a few months. The commercial fabric bags are more expensive and reusable.

These are washable and reuseable and at least 1 mill thick,, the first ones walmart had were really thin but now they are much more thick,,I think they would be fine for at least one cycle maybe even a few. For 25cents even one cycle is great!

If they are polypropelene, they will not be biodegradable and should easily last a veg-flowering grow.
We have them in the UK but they look like an immitation hemp/canvas type fabric. I have seen them used as planters but not for weed.

I guess if someone can make a bong out of a grapefruit and a disposable pen then growing weed in a grocery bag should be simple!
