Tetra pack plant pots

Tuesday, 13th March 2012

We throw away billions of tetra pak cartoons every year worldwide. Some recycling centres can process them but most cannot so what can we do with them? Ju Clear suggests plant them up!

I used to think I was being green using a papper potter but the 10 mile round trip to buy a newspapper is not very green. This is my second year of making plant pots our of tetra paks. To make them simple cut the pack in half, make some drainage holes in the bottom and use one whole tetra pack to make a tray for the other 'pot' to sit in by cutting the front off.

It's that simple!

Climate change is really happening right now, so, use containers in planting rather than trash it anywhere. Container plants also add versatility to any gardens whether it is large and small. They lend instant color and add in the architecture of the house to the garden. Place them on the ground or on a pedestal, mount them on a windowsill, or hang them from your porch. A pair of matching containers on either side of the front walk serves as a welcoming decoration,. Get a short term loan to help with your garden too.
