We need 100 forever homes for Ms. Swirly Pot, can you help?

These cute planter pots are made from 100% recycled plastic lids. Lids were donated from people across Australia as part of our Lids4Planters project to recycle the unrecyclable.

Good for:

  • Saving plastic lids destined for the landfill
  • Self-watering feature
  • Base can be used separately to grow micro-herbs or re-grow food waste

*images are an illustration of how the pots will look like. We aim to make the actual pots as close as possible to the images.


PRE-ORDER SALE (Delivery ETA Mar 2022)

In July, we embarked on a mission to recycle the unrecyclable with our Lids4Planters project. We asked our community to collect and donate used plastic lids to us. We had a target of 2500 lids and we exceeded this target by over 15,000!

We’re now giving these lids destined for the landfill a second life as these cute planter pots. We’ve named her Ms. Swirly Pot and she needs a forever home. Each pot will save approximately 150 lids. We have about 15,000 lids which means we need to find a home for 100 Ms. Swirly Pots. Can you give her a forever home?

We’ve designed her so she’s a little special, she can be used either as a:

  1. Self-watering pot (handy for forgetful plant-killers)
  2. Use the base to grow micro-herbs and the top, as a regular pot
  3. Use the base to re-grow food waste (eg. Bok choy!) and the top, as a regular pot

If you are a kindy/school/business and would like to purchase more than 8 pots, please get in touch ( so we can work out a special discount for you.


Made from 100% recycled plastic lids donated by Aussies across the country.
