Growing Change: One Pepsi Bottle at a Time

 Pepsi Challange Blog image 1Who would have thought…using Pepsi bottles to grow vegetables? Initially, the notion of “Pepsi” and “vegetables” in the same sentence might seem a bit far fetched. Yet with some creative and resourceful thought, Solexx Dealer Greg Hancock, of Remote Gardener has proven this possible with effective results.

Through the Pepsi Refresh Challenge, Greg has demonstrated his passion for recycling and hydroponic growing. The Pepsi bottles serve as reservoirs for his hydroponic system, while the attached piping circulates water from the main pump, guiding nutrients to feed the plants.  As we speak, Remote Gardener’s customers are enjoying the zesty flavors of fresh tomatoes, peppers, and herbs from this season’s harvest.
