From Miniature Indoor Gardens to Scrap Plastic Furniture Pieces

 - Sep 2, 2017
These eco dorm decor examples range from miniature indoor gardens to scrap plastic furniture pieces. In addition to seeking budget-friendly and stylish home accessories for their first apartment or shared dorm, students are also growing increasingly more environmentally conscious when it comes to their purchasing decisions.

For those living in small spaces with limited outdoor access, self-watering planters and mason jar gardens are not only decorative, but also let users grow their very own herbs and veggies at home. Additional urban garden solutions include Valsfer's planter which doubles as a light source and hydroponic cultivation system.

Appealing to craft lovers, examples like DIY macrame lampshades and cork-crafted coasters are easy-to-follow projects that add a personal touch to any space. A memorable project -- Agne Kisonaite's nail polish bottle mural -- is an eco-friendly mosaic piece that transforms waste into a multicolored tile motif.
