Vertical Garden Video
Gardening can be an interesting hobby come activity. Most people say gardening is addictive once they start setting it up. Yep its true, we at Suseum started setting up our garden and now it has taken a very beautiful shape into a vertical garden. We have set up a beautiful vertical garden with waste bottles with three different models. We dont have to invest lot on pots, we can set up a garden with waste items we have at home. We will provide you the details of how we can set up our Vertical garden.
Step 1: Take a thick plastic bottle with its cap.
Step 2: Make a rectangular hole in the bottom of the plastic bottle on two sides. Make 3 or 4 bottles like that. Make holes in the bottle caps for the water to drip to the plastic bottle below, so the excess water flows down to the below bottle and water is not wasted.
Step 3: Fill the bottles with soil and sow some seeds in them and arrange all the 3 or 4 bottles we have cut, one below another like you see in picture.
Step 4 : At the top place a half cut bottle , this is where we will be pouring water.
Step 5 : Place a half cut plastic bottle at the bottom for the excess water to get stored, so that we can reuse the water and it doesnt spoil your walls.
By generating an astounding 1.85 million tonnes of e-waste annually, India has become the fifth biggest e-waste producing country in the world. When electronics end up in landfills, toxics like lead, mercury, and cadmium enter into the soil and water. The ewaste problem is huge all over the world, more than 20 million tons of e-waste are produced every year.
We as an individual can reduce our carbon footprint by not throwing e-waste into the landfills. We can search for the recycling provider around our locality and give it to them or we can start reusing them in creative ways.

Toilet Roll Upcycle Idea done at Office Free time.
We find waste every where around us. Just pause for a second and look around you. I am sure you will find atleast one thing which we wont be using for a long time or something that we would have considered waste and kept it under cup board.
Upcycling is not Magic, Anybody can upcycle anywhere anytime. I am sitting now at my office where i cannot bring any tools to office from home . With available waste materials and tools found at office desk, i have upcycled a Pen Stand from Toilet Roll.
Imagine gifting our colleague something hand made in minutes. Hand made gifts are made with love and care and I am sure this Upcycled Gift could be a Treasure which we didn’t allow to end in landfill hurting environment.
