There are many different styles of pots, but here is a different take on how you should pot your plants. The DIY concept was created by a graphic design agency called Tokyo Pistol, and is rightfully named 'Honbachi,' which in English means 'book pot.'

Moisten up your old books and make them into unique Honbachi pots for your flowers instead of throwing them out or using them as kindling for your fireplace.

Implications - These flower pot books are the perfect way to incorporate some environmental qualities into your urban apartment. Not only are they eco-friendly, they also won't break the bank since all you'll need to buy is the plant!
