Remember when VHS tapes were the gold-standard in movie rentals? Seems like forever ago, doesn’t it? And where are all those VHS tapes now? I mean, besides my packrat parents’ basement? Landfills? Well, Etsy shop niftyrecyclables is doing their part to reduce, reuse, and recycle by selling VHS tapes that have been transformed into little planters. I’m going to grow a Blu-Ray tree!
Planters range in price from $25 – $30 depending on the movie title. You can even request a specific movie and, provided it isn’t too rare, niftyrecyclables will procure the VHS and turn it into a planter for $30. Obviously, Little Shop of Horrors is a must.
Provided you already have the movie you want to use, I can’t imagine modding a VHS tape for use as a planter is too difficult, even without instructions. Granted there’s no way I could do it, but I’m less of a do-it-yourselfer and much more of a destroy-it-yourselfer.
