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!
