Easily turning any home into a leafy green sanctuary, the new range of felt planters from Woolly Pocket help in the urge to count down the remaining days of winter. The collection of freestanding containers, launching this week, consists of dark curvy shapes spanning short and shallow to taller with narrow openings at the tops.
Made from recycled plastic bottles, this new range builds on the success of Woolly’s existing range of freestanding pocket planters and their products for making living walls.
The modular system, called Wallys, comes in one, three or five sections with waterproof linings to protect interiors from moisture.
Environmentally concerned down to their community, the company also works with California schools to help add edible gardening to their programs. To date, they’ve built five edible gardens in California schools with a goal of implementing the concept in schools nationwide. Accompanied by a nutrition program, the gardens teach students how to grow produce and create dishes made with fresh vegetables.
The new collection will be available from Woolly Pocket starting 5 March 2010. The site also has a wealth of information on creating edible gardens, including a useful video.
