    HI Satinhooks, Yes there is definitely a more sutainable material than styrofoam. The foam is for exterior insulation an not intended for real contact with the plants. Although the MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheets) by DOW Styrofoam the temperature of the foam needs to hit 160 degrees before leaching and heating is the only way it will off gas, but I still think its a good idea to separate the green from the foam. New materials and model coming soon. be sure to check back for the new model.

    Good question Ali. The grow media is not actually soil, but rather pumice and fiber so it is very light weight unlike traditional soil. When it becomes wet it expands. In combination with the pinching metal brads and root barrier the soil sticks to the surfaces before lifting vertical. So far no grow media has leaked out the bottom, but the roots have expanded.
