New Garden Ties made of 65% post-consumer recycled plastic and easier, gentler on plants
MANCHESTER, N.H. – June 10, 2020 – Velcro Companies introduced a new and improved range of VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Garden Ties that gardeners can depend on from spring planting to fall harvest.
To grow and nurture a garden that’s beautiful and productive, gardeners need strong, versatile and reliable tools. The garden tie is one of the most important resources for organizing and securing plants and equipment. In the past, many gardeners used twine or wire, which were difficult to use and often discarded after a single use.
VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Garden Ties are a simple and easy way to stake, train and nurture plants, stems and vines in the garden. Additionally, pre-cut VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Garden Ties make organizing hoses, cords and tools a snap.
“Garden Ties are essential to ensuring the health, vitality and longevity of plants and are indispensable for gardeners,” said Andrew Ellis, Vice President, Consumer, Velcro Companies. “Our VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Garden Ties offer the strength and reliability to plant in the spring and the versatility to be quickly adjusted and repositioned as the garden grows and flourishes as well as reused year after year.”
Using the company’s iconic hook and loop technology makes VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Garden Ties easy to use. Simply cut-to-length and wrap the VELCRO® Brand tie onto itself for a secure hold around the plant and post, stake, tomato cage or trellis. This makes plant support easy with no knots or no twists. Additionally, the new VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Garden Ties are lighter and gentler on plants.
“I’ve used VELCRO® Brand Garden Ties for years. They’re so versatile and the first tool I place in my tool bucket when going out to the garden,” said Charlie Nardozzi, nationally recognized garden consultant. “VELCRO® Brand Garden Ties are strong enough to hold up large vines, such as wisteria; gentle enough to keep large basil or pepper plants vertical without harming their stems; and long lasting, so I don’t have to retie my grapes or roses each year.”
Because VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Garden Ties wrap onto themselves for a secure hold, they can quickly and easily be repositioned with no cutting. At the end of the garden season, the Garden Ties can be wrapped onto themselves and quickly and safely stored for reuse next season.
More importantly, they are made from 65% post-consumer recycled plastic. Milk bottles that may have been thrown into landfills are now recycled into VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Garden Ties.
VELCRO® Brand Garden Ties are available in three form factor options:
