The planters are made in part from recycled milk containers [5] 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 [6] 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!
