Swedish paper company, Oppboga, distributed in Australia by Spicers, has exhibited a water-resistant paperboard flower pot filled with water.

Speaking with Sprinter at the recent FESPA exhibition in Amsterdam, Oppboga sales director Frederik Johansson showcased the moisture-resistant paperboard called Oppboga Resilient.

“Here at FESPA, we are showing Oppboga Resilient as a flower pot filled with water inside. This is a paper product that is made from 100 per cent from fibre and can sustain a lot of water exposure. This will last for three or four days before it starts to leak from the flower pot,” he said.

“We also sell this material for election signs where it can easily last outside for three or four weeks without any problems. We have invested a lot of resources and with the upcoming European elections, hopefully a lot of political parties will use our product.”
