Who knew that old stuff made into new stuff could look this cool?  

Upcycled rubber planters add a touch of eco glam to any living space and are super practical for outdoor use.

Handmade in Vietnam from reclaimed truck tyres, these pots help to save old materials from going into landfill and come in a wide range of shapes and sizes.

Small barrel planters are ideal to green up your balcony or your desk, and are great for those who live in an apartment or don't have that much outdoor space.

​You can keep your plant in its existing pot and simply pop it inside one of these planters. If it's going to live indoors, keep a draining dish inside the rubber planter too to avoid leakage.

Perfect for vertical gardens, hanging planters are great for growing herbs and look fantastic against a wire backdrop or a pallet wall. 

For larger plants like ficuses, yuccas or golden cane palms, use one of the bigger round planters, which come in four different sizes.

The curved shape gives a nice softness to the planter and provides the perfect contrast to strong and industrial nature of this reclaimed material.

If you've got large plants that need to be moved in and out of sunlight,  the large round planters with handles are your new best friend. 

Not only do they make talking point in your outdoor space, the sturdy rubber handles make it so easy to move your plants around.
