Turn man-made into man-saved by creating a Re-DIY vertical green living wall as Turkish design firm Designnobis did. For their Naturewall, the designers collected about ten used plastic disposable coffee cups, washed them off, then created a simple flexible metal holder system to hang the cups, transforming them into a vertical garden.
The Naturwall system includes an aluminum metal frame with 10-12 cup holders that one can set up unlimited variations to accomodate any particular size and type of plants.
Naturwall received a Green Dot Build Award, which recognizes innovative design and architecture that achieves the highest level of environmental responsibility.
