    TerraCycle sued by Scotts Miracle-Gro
    TerraCycle's test data are considered proprietary. If Rutger's U did an independent test, that should be good enough. Both parties can have an independent arbitor do an independent test.

    I just don't see that the two products packaging looks alike.

    They are using as an excuse to wipe out the eco-friendly competition because they know people will naturally go for the 'good for the environment' brands since everyones all hyped up over the environment now

    Good for TerraCycle! They must be making a difference if Scotts is worried.

    Very possible. Even without much of a case, they could be hoping that just the legal costs alone will put the small company out of business before they ever have a chance to become bigger competition.

    I can see the TerraCycle bottle getting confused for Lipton's Ice Tea, but certainly not the other bottle in that picture. :rolleyes:

    I know Miracle Gro works & I will continue to use it, but the lawsuit is ridiculous.
