Hey Permies,

Have a look at this:

Anyone tried doing this?

Any thoughts on pros and cons?

I've heard of this...and while I love the idea of planting something where ever you can, in my opinion, the idea of taking something that should be recycled and using it in a way that some call recycling but in fact turns it ultimitely into trash is not a sound one. My understanding is that weathered plastic bottles can't be recycled....and plastics as they break down can leach out bad things.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://richsoil.com/cards
