Sewing Machine Planter – Recycling Just Got Hip

I love nothing better than creative reuse of old and neglected objects and here, The Poor Porker (run by Robin and Jarrid) have shown what is possible with a little bit of love and ingenuity. They have an interesting back story which I encourage you to watch where they explain how they take “whatever we have in front of us and utilising it to the best of our abilities” – and what a great philosophy to live by.

The Poor Porker is a popular little cafe stand in Lakeland, Florida selling freshly fried beignets and more recently recycling unloved objects into awesome new functional fancies! Check out this sewing machine planter below and other planters they have managed to salvage and re-use here.
