A holiday that celebrates our Mother Earth and the day when we support environmental protection and raise environmental awareness. An event that we need to celebrate every day, the whole year long, but unfortunately only few of us do so even today. Our lives have become driven by routines, always on the fast track of the rat race, so we forget to stop and look around, feel the wind and smell the roses. So today, for all those who live in the gray, cold cities, bring a piece of nature in your home in a way that will be eco-friendly, yet modern DIY at the same time. A great idea is to make yourself a hanging planter from recyclable materials and here we have the perfect 7 tutorials to do just that.
