The Floppy Disk Planter is an effective way to make use of any unwanted floppy disks you have lying around. This home project gives full instructions on how to construct the planter, helping you to recycle these now obsolete items into something that is both useful and decorative.

The floppy disk was an item that was in high demand in the recent past. Many households have some of these filling up draws, in boxes, though most any data held on them is either no longer required or already backed up onto a CD/DVD. To help prevent so many from ending up in landfill suggestions for how to re-purpose them have become popular, the idea of creating a planter appeals to us here at Envirogadget as a decorative way to get more plants into our homes.

To create your own Floppy Disk Planter you will need 6 floppy disks that are no longer required, an empty plastic bottle, a plant (preferably in its own plastic pot still) some glue, a pen, and a craft knife (or another implement that allows you to cut the bottle and a disk). This ‘Blue Peter’ style project is easy to follow and the resulting planter could be used for many other purposes, for example as a pen holder or utensils pot.

This home project allows you to make use of technology that is obsolete in today’s world, helping to prevent many of these disks from going to landfills.
