Hippy Shopper (which also talks about things like fairtrade clothes and organic beer) is reporting that a device has been invented to turn newspapers into plant pots.
More proof that you don’t have to be Charlie Dimmock to get your fingers muddy – a genius little widget that makes old newspapers into new plant pots. You wrap the paper around the post, push it into the base… et voila! One free seedling pot.
I am all for innovation, recycling and cutting global plant pot numbers by 12% by 2015, but surely the newspaper will go all soggy when you water the plant.
If anyone has tried pouring water into a newspaper cup and can report back as to the results I would be most interested to find out what happened. Who knows, perhaps we can cut china mug numbers by 12% as well using the same technology.
