Put those old tin cans to good use with this easy project by Pillar Box Blue

There’s something calming about being surrounded by green, and even if you’re limited to space, no home is complete without a couple of succulents. These gorgeous, upcycled planters take just ten minutes to make, and are a great way to repurpose old tin cans, whilst bringing a touch of glamour to your home. The best part is you don’t need much equipment at all, just grab your trusty hammer and your imagination. Try out different colours or get creative with embellishment – tie ribbons or lace around the centres for a rustic finish, or if you’ve been to the beach, shells and pretty stones can easily be stuck on. They also make good candle holders, pen pots, make-up brush holders, vases for foraged posies or even somewhere to stash cutlery.

About Be Kind

Hello, A warm welcome to our very first issue. I wonder what led you to pick up our magazine from the stand? Perhaps the striking image caught your eye? Or, maybe the title, Be Kind, struck a chord? Either way, we hope you’re here because you, too, want to make the world a better place. It’s a scary and uncertain time, as we watch our seas fill with plastic, our bins bulge and our air become dense with fumes and pollution. Each month, these pages will be packed with positive, proactive solutions to help you make small, achievable changes that will have a much bigger global impact. This month we’re focusing in on the huge problem of plastic. As one of the biggest, most talked about environmental issues of the last year, plastic has affected every corner of the earth and all aspects of the environment. From ditching straws and water bottles, to who to follow on Instagram for zero-waste inspiration, we’ve rounded up some motivating ideas to help you reduce your own footprint. We all need to learn to tread a little more lightly, and it’s these small steps that will spark and inspire greater progress. Showing a little kindness is what the world needs right now. Enjoy the issue, Phillipa Editor
