DIY Tire Planter

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. Tires 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.

Here’s a great project to turn them into flower pots, instead.

DIY Tire Planter

All you need is a jigsaw to create this beautiful planter. Just make sure to clean it thoroughly before designing the exterior with paint.

Plant flowers or herbs, but this could also be used to grow those that need deeper soil. 🙂
