If you're conscious of the earth and try to use and reuse, to keep things out of the landfill, here are a few projects that might just help out the earth, as well as give you a feeling of satisfaction;

Some of my favorite planters for succulents are made out of stuff that normally would be discarded, like satellite dishes; the shallow soil is just right for these tough and reliable plants.

Roots make great planters; finding these on a trip to the beach or on a forest hike is a way to remember your good times;

Thrift store finds like this glass fish tank can hold succulents as long as you remember not to overwater them.  Good drainage is usually the mantra with all these plants, but if you can keep the water level below that of the roots, they'll thrive.  Of course, a layer of lava rock or other drain rock is both decorative and necessary for their survival;

Boots and shoes make planters too; don't miss out on some of the fun projects in the Best Succulent Containers Contest from previous years using these;

However you decide to celebrate our beautiful blue planet, find a way to do it with less; reuse, reduce and recycle to create some innovative and beautiful ways to display our favorite succulent plants.
