Floppy Disk Planter – 1.4MB of recycled green goodness


If by some chance you’ve still got some floppy disks lying around, and a little spare time try making a Floppy Disk Planter. It kills two birds with one stone – you’ll save having to dump the outdated disks in the landfill and you’ll end up with a cool conversation piece. It’s a great do-it-yourself gift idea too.


With half a dozen floppy disks, a plastic bottle, some glue. duct tape, a pencil and some clothespins – and a little ingenuity – you can create the greenest plant holder around. Something fun to do on a staycation, I think.

Floppy disk planters are a great way to use old floppy disks that you may have lying around. They are made simply from floppies glued together to form a cube and adding a liner on the inside.
