This 'Remediative Planter' was designed by Meghan Moe Beitiks for the Garden for the Environment in San Francisco. It's a clever example of how green design is everywhere you look, and how just a few eco touches can make all the difference in a garden setting.

The Remediative Planter is made of an old washer drum lined with old medical test trays. The green lining you see comes from used Astroturf, and dandelion has been planted in the planter because, according to Meghan Moe Beitiks, dandelion's natural properties remove toxins and heavy metals from soil.
