Prevent non-native species from spreading into the environment.
Always be aware of their environmental impacts.
ADA is promoting an awareness campaign to prevent plants such as aquatic plants and jungle plants from being released into the environment, having “Prevent non-native species from spreading into the environment. Always be aware of their environmental impacts” as a slogan. Many of plants for planted aquarium, Terrarium and Paludarium are non-native, and once released into the environment, they may disturb the natural environment. Your understanding and cooperation with “Green Manners” is highly appreciated in order to enjoy the hobby to grow plants for a long time.
■Environmental impacts caused by plants
When aquatic plants and indoor plants are released into nature, it can have unexpected impacts on the natural ecosystem. Make sure to enjoy plants you purchase only in aquarium.
■Familiar nature you can protect
For plants such as fast-growing aquatic plants, even a small cut piece of leaves and stems from pruning could have impacts on nature. While being aware of the environmental impacts, try to prevent them from being released into the environment by using strainer nets.
※By adhering high density fine strainer nets to drainage pipes and hoses, plants can be prevented from spreading into the environment through the domestic wastewater. Make sure not to release plants you grow into nature.
