Want to have a small greenhouse in your yard to grow some veggies? Then use plastic bottles to build one! Not only are you keeping construction expenses to a minimum, but you are also helping save the environment.
To build a large-sized greenhouse, you’ll need around 1,500 pieces of 2-liter plastic bottles. Can you imagine how much waste you’re already keeping away from nature with just a single greenhouse project? It surely is a great recycling idea for plastic bottles!
The portable greenhouse is designed to protect your plants and seeding against rough weather conditions like rain, wind, and snow. It can create the best environment for your plants to grow healthily and is helpful to extend your growing season!
