Everyone knows how much women like to buy shoes, boots and bags. Today men buy shoes, boots, sneakers and slippers often also. Each household has many pairs. It is not easy to decide what to do with winter boots, when we are relocating to warmer areas, and how to reuse and recycle those shoes and boots that do not fit or simply out of style.

One of possible environmental solutions is shoe recycling for decorating homes with plants. Creative plastic recycling of old ski boots and plastic shoes offers great, environmentally friendly home decorating ideas, money saving opportunities and fun. Shoes and boots recycling for planters with flowers or house plants beautifully decorates homes and gardens on a dime.

Small house plants and seasonal flowers do not mind growing in planters made of old or no longer needed shoes and boots. Small green house plants, flowers or tiny bonsai trees in unique, custom made, shoe recycling planters look great in every room and outside. A green plant on the coffee table in the living room or on the kitchen window sill, in the bathroom or beside a computer in the office is a beautiful, healthy and inexpensive eco friendly decoration that connect interior design with the nature and reduce household waste.
