These zero waste plant pots offer alternatives to plastic plant pots. Terracotta pots are fine,but these use up waste that would go to landfill. For the vases, avoid pet-toxic houseplants (inc. lilies, sago palm and cheese plants). And never display foliage near windows, as this can cause birds to fly into windows.
This recycled paper ‘graphic’ pot is made from surplus paper that is turned into new paper. The softness of the paper enables it to be embossed with beautiful patterns. In Black or Dark Green. These waterproof vases/planters are not designed to hold standing water, for extended periods.

In 4 colours: Emerald Green & Bright Yellow, Coral & Lilac, Mustard & Bright Pink and Cobalt Blue & Bright Orange. Each pot is sealed using a VOC-free water-based sealant in a matte finish, which absorbs into the material to give excellent water protection.
