Consider the items you use every day that are often thrown out–a water bottle, a tin can, even old toys. How can you breathe new life into these items, allowing something to grow inside? After choosing your vessel, design your own planters from these items and find out. As your plants grow, share how easy it is to commit to the environment at home!
