This tilted “piggy” bank doubles as an awesome planter once broken. So, now after saving up all your nickels and dimes, you can put your hard-saved cash towards growing a little tree! Designed by Oji Masanori [1], the nifty green concept is an elegant form that minimizes waste, and depending on how much you save, also tilts in a different way to add to the experience of saving. We love the simple yet dynamic shape of the bank, and the way it transforms through the act of destruction.
