I am a big fan of upcycling old items to add something "new" to our house. I recently was able to gather a few vintage items from my grandmother's old house. It is a special way to remember her and also to put to use the things that would be thrown away or sold. I turned a few vintage aluminum coffee pots into beautiful planters, and they add such a nice look to our bathrooms.
April is Earth Month and it's a great way to get people thinking about recyling, upcycling, and making a switch to more eco-friendly products. Ibotta has a great way to earn .75 with the purchase of Tom's of Maine "Luminous White™" Toothpaste, which we love because it does not contain artificial colors, preservatives, or flavors. It is a great switch to make if you want a more natural toothpaste.
Upcycled Vintage Coffee Pot Planters
Luckily, my grandmother kept everything in great shape. The coffee pots I found were a little dusty, but all they needed was a quick rinse with water and they were good.
The first thing I did was removed the lids and inside parts. Of course, you could leave the lids intact, but there was a broken glass piece on top of mine that kept falling out, so I had to remove the lid.
I then collected rocks and placed them on the bottom of the coffee pot in one layer, for water drainage so the roots are not just sitting in water.
Next, I added potting soil. I had already purchased my plants, so I just filled the pots up to a certain level, added in my plants, and then filled around them with more potting soil.
I am so excited at how they turned out. The plants that I bought look great in our bathrooms and will also help purify the air.
Tom's of Maine Toothpaste Is Our Toothpaste Of Choice
I have loved Tom's of Maine products for some time, so I was really excited to find their new Luminous White Clean Mint toothpaste at Walmart during a recent shopping trip.
Tom's Of Maine Luminous White is safe on tooth enamel, safe for everyday use, and is made of biodegradable or mineral-derived ingredients. Luminous White is Tom's of Maine's most advanced whitening toothpaste ever!
How will you change up your personal care products or find a way to give back to the Earth for Earth Month?
