5 Easy Steps To Make A DIY Tire Planter


One of the greatest challenges we are facing is how to get rid of MANY millions of tires every year.

Because tires are made of natural rubber and plastic, it’s easy to overlook how much they contribute to pollution. These are actually among the most common plastic polluters on earth. A 2017 study estimates that tires account for as much as 10 percent of overall microplastic waste in the world’s oceans.

How to make a DIY Tire Planter?

1. Clean the tires with water for an easier cut.

2. To make the groove, nail some old pruning scissors, where we can insert the jigsaw blade.

3. Cut the sides evenly with a wavey style or according to your preferred style.

4. Remove one of the waves and step on it until it is flat. The removed part will be the base of the pot.

5. Wash, let it dry, and paint with your desired design using outdoor enamel paint.
