This year the theme for Earth Day (from the Earth Day Network) is "A Billion Acts of Green." I don't suppose they're talking about money or jealousy, either. If you're looking for your own act of green, I've got a few suggestions for you: compost, reuse materials as much as often, and don't think, just plant!
I love the idea of making a modern planter out of an old file cabinet. I think the first time I saw it was back in '09 on Design*Sponge. Amy Pennington has revisited the idea in Apartment Gardening and my motivation to actually make one is that much stronger. Of course, the incredible illustrations by the always-awesome Kate Bingaman Burt make the instructions that much easier to follow.
Are you getting your green on this Earth Day? Any plans include plants? Tell me what you're getting into!
