• Pet Tree Vertical eco planting system uses recycled PET bottles and plastic

  • pet-tree-vertical-eco-planting-system1.jpgIn an endeavor to keep PET bottles away from landfills and helping bring greener life forms closer to our daily lives, designer Dr. Hakan Gursu designed the Pet Tree Vertical eco planting system, a winner of the Green Dot Awards and the International Design Awards. The system uses old PET bottles structured in such a way, that they replicate a tree-like shape. The system then uses a water-collection system that enables drop irrigation to replenish the greenery planted in the PET bottles.

    And that’s not all. The body of the entire system also uses recycled plastic with the support backbone made from 1mm thick stainless steel. All in all, this seems to be a pretty innovative way to recycle used PET bottles and make urban living spaces greener.
