Do you know this when the plastic waste overflows again and you almost get mad, because you automatically produce garbage with every purchase? I try to pay attention as best I can, but sometimes I find myself getting the much lighter PET packaging to end up in my shopping scales.
There is a very interesting study by DANK, the manufacturer of environmentally friendly, recycled hygiene papers. It says that 65% of Indians are happy to make a small contribution to environmental protection. I definitely belong to that 65%. With hygiene articles, I already manage conscious shopping quite well – for example, I use recycled toilet paper or use body butter that is not packed in plastic. A small contribution to environmental protection, which just feels good to me.
So that my PET bags don’t turn into garbage, I’ve come up with a chic DIY. It just feels great when you can turn things that are rubbish at first glance into something beautiful & meaningful. In no time, the milk packs become chic planters for my herbs!
You need These Materials:
- Empty milk or juice bagsself-adhesive film
- Cable ties
- Herbal soil
- Herbs that require little water are particularly suitable e.B. lavender, thyme, rosemary and sage
Separate the PET packaging at the top, leaving only 2/3 of the package.
Place the self-adhesive film with the printed side down on the table. To avoid the awkward measurement, simply wrap the foil around the milk bag once and then separate it. Important: Let the top and bottom survive 2 to 3 cm.
Now apply the cut foil to the milk bag. Thereafter, cut in the overstanding end and turn it over.
Depending on where the PET pots are to be fixed, the holes for the cable ties are now cut. Since I have a steel girder on the balcony I need 2 slits at the top and bottom.
Fill a little soil into the new pots, then fill a plant in and again with soil.
Then pour well.
The planted pots are also great as a souvenir for your next barbecue party. This is best done without cable ties, because the vessels also do well as a table decoration.
