Those old vintage tea tins you have sitting and gathering dust? Inside and outside?

Give them new life at Vriksha Nursery. Take the tins there and they’ll fill it in with gorgeous little plants that you can show off on your window sills. Those tea tins will thank you for it.

Get in touch with Vriksha, right here.

Recycle Sundays: Made entirely from discarded plastic and foil packaging, these ropes are made strong and sturdy by professional rope-makers in Gujrat and marketed by the micro-entrepreneurs of the region. Makes for happy Indian rope beds amongst a hoard of other things.

Here’s a tip:

 If its been a while since you held a brush, use a crayon to mark your drawing on the bottle.
