All Elho plant pots are made from recycled plastic – in fact, the company uses 11 million kilos of waste each year to manufacture its products – and production is entirely wind-powered. So their well-designed, long-lasting containers and planters make a great alternative to cheap, ugly plastic plant pots that crack and split before inevitably ending up in landfill.

  • the Bouncy Basil pot designed to help keep your basil – or other herbs – plants alive for longer by means of a special mechanism that prevents overwatering,
  • the Magic Microgreens pot (pictured above) that makes it easy to grow microgreens in your kitchen, and
  • the Amazing Avocado Floater (pictured below) that helps you grow an avocado plant from a stone
