Vertical flower pot is an activity which is part of the philosophy of Good Environmental Practices Directorate.  This directorate belongs to the Environment Department of the Municipality of Quito.

This initiative seeks to promote a behavior change in citizens through small and simple actions that will improve their quality of life and their relationship with the environment.

Practicing the 4Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Recovery) the vertical flower pots are an initiative that allow to use recycle material such as plastic bottles and using everyday materials like scissors, cord string, thumbtacks and nails.

These activities let us have small green spaces where it is difficult because of the lack of place; and these flower pots can be used to grow medicinal plants, ornamental plants and even urban gardens.
