Hello,

I’d like to make plant pots with recycled plastic- does anyone in the south of england have the means or tools to do this?

Thank you.

Welcome to Precious Plastic @reducereuserecycle 🙂
Making flower pots is not complicated, you just need to fabricate a metal mould to pour the shredded plastic, then heat the plastic filled mould in an oven and finally apply pressure to distribute the molten plastic across the mould.

A cheaper/easier alternative is just to cut bottles in half and decorate them, and there you have your flower pots.
