Gallery: Recycled POTOGREEN Planters Disguise Parisian Parking Poles as...

That has the added benefit of sprucing up the city once again!

The planters are made in part from recycled milk containers and fabric recovered from tents that are made by people undergoing rehabilitation at Emmaus, realizing, according to Kingleur, a further two dimensions of the POTOGREEN project; namely sustainable development and economic solidarity. The aluminum inside the milk containers ensures that the planters won’t leak, while the exterior canvas keeps them nice and dry. Shop owners, residents, school children, and other citizens are invited to get their very own planter and reclaim their favorite urban space!
