Friday's Eco Tip: Plastic container planters

As much as I try to minimize buying items in plastic packaging, sometimes I do end up with plastic packaging. Like these plastic containers I have from Soap & Glory body scrubs. You can most definitely use them to store stuff...but you can also make them planters for new plants.

First, clean up your container...

And poke some holes for drainage.

The cover works nicely as a plant dish.

Pot your choice of plant...

And put it in a cute container.

Here's another one of my plastic container planters, sitting pretty in an upcycled tea tin.

These make great gifts when you visit a friend or relative at their homes. :)

Happy weekend friends!

Thumbs up for recycling plastic containers! Even plastic take-out drink cups should be reused. I turn them into seedling starters and with the lids on they become mini greenhouses.
