recycled plastic plant pots made from recycled mobile phones

You don't have to grow houseplants in a peat based compost. Essentially the compost is just the medium holding the plant up and allowing the roots to pull nutrients through Moisture.

You can throw out the compost, and along with it insects and disease as many Houseplants grow very nicely in a simple 'double pot reservior system'with a nutrient-water solution. Sometimes refered to as passive hydroponics. In hydroculture, clay pebbles rather than compost hold up the plant's stem and roots.

 

 

 

 

The recycled plastic containers combine a strong environmental message with an evocative and distinct aesthetic appeal, linked to the processing of waste, especially plastics.

The displays are made from a variety of recycled plastics such as used vending machine coffee cups, yoghurt pots and refrigerator linings,underground pipe material (blue from water pipes and yellow from gas mains), crushed CDs & plastic water bottles and banknotes.

The bottles are from various UK municipal authority collection schemes. The exact mix will also vary according to the area from which the bottles are collected, fashion in bottle colours, and the season of the year.The manufacturing process produces a characteristic flow patternwhich streaks outwards towards the edges and corners.
