Sustainable balcony garden ideas

Although you do not have access to a large backyard, it does not mean you cannot have green life in your outside room to grow vegetables, herbs and flowers on the balcony. If you are looking for inspiration for balcony garden ideas, read here where we focus on a fun, alternative and not least sustainable way of growing green life on your balcony.

Balcony garden ideas that focus on sustainability

Sustainability is taking care of the environment so the impact by our actions gets as small as possible – for instance recycling and avoiding materials that are not biodegradable in nature.

We at sprout believe in sustainability, and we want more people to take responsibility for the environment. That is why we have created a simple and fun, but sustainable solution: The Sprout pencil – a pencil with an enclosed seed capsule that sprouts and turns into green life when you sow the stub when it has become too short to draw or write with.

Bury the pencil stub in a flower box with good compost and make sure it gets adequate water and natural light. After a few weeks, fresh vegetables, aromatic herbs or beautiful flowers will sprout from the biodegradable seed capsule. We believe it is one of the most creative garden ideas – and it is 100 percent sustainable.

Spread your balcony garden ideas and contribute to sustainability

The Sprout pencil is an obvious gift idea to the creative soul who also wants to contribute to sustainability. The pencil is available in different colors and is made of high-quality graphite that makes it perfect to write or draw with. And all elements of the Sprout pencil – from the wood to the embedded seed capsule – are naturally biodegradable.
