Earthday: Make Functional Cardboard Furniture

There are so many options for reusing goods without wasting the energy utilized in recycling plants. With determination and creativity you'll find that anything considered to be trash can be transformed through the death/rebirth cycle.

That is an awesome idea.

We've been planting in yogurt bins, old plastic cups, coffee cans and milk jug bottoms with tomatoes, cilantro, mint, basil, tomatillos, and peppers on our balcony.

It's always better to reuse.

Hopefully, they'll survive.

Much love

Isnt it fly?
It's definitely on the list of future projects. There are probably sustainable ways to waterproof the furniture as well, so it lasts and isn't ruined by spillage ^_^

Very cool that you've a garden on your balcony! That's been crossing my mind lately. There's a girl on Youtube, named GradieGreen who was proposing that everyone start little gardens in their homes.
My Mom and I were talking about the hydroponic gardens. Apparently they're only about 200.00 and can grow fruits and vegetables indoors.
Very slick deal.

You gotta check out Patti Moreno, the Garden Girl. http://tinyurl.com/466mse

I may be biased since she hails from Boston, inner city at that. She does great things with such a small amount of land, she's even raising small livestock for fiber which she spins, cards and creates clothing from.

She even does some hydroponic gardening with live fish as well.

She's great.
