Top 10 Recycled Plant Containers


4
Disposable Goods

Looking for the ultimate way to recycle? Use disposable goods as plant containers! Milk jugs and 2-liter bottles, for example, make excellent homes for your plants. All you need to do is cut off the bottom portion of the container; wash it thoroughly with soap and water; make several small holes for drainage; fill it with soil and plant your seeds. As any environmentalist will tell you, even though these containers are made to be used once and thrown away, they're not biodegradable and can be reused multiple times in your garden.
