Turning "these beds into green beds" - a project with Dr. Tony Ryan at the University of Sheffield
Foam in discarded mattresses becomes the cornerstone of a hydroponic garden system at Zaatari camp in Jordan.
These beds are non-toxic, energy-efficient, and can provide food at a low cost to anyone keen on reusing polyurethane and becoming their own gardener.

"These 'recycled gardens' use the mattresses in place of the soil, which solves two problems in one: It reuses the mountain of plastic mattresses that have piled up in the camp and it allows everyone to grow fresh food in a crowded, desert environment"
