Basketball fans with a green thumb will be delighted to know that finally, their hobbies are colliding in the name of sustainability. 

Small, Black-owned business Ol’ Dirty Planters create sustainable, forever homes for unusable basketballs with an innovative design that liven up any room. In partnership with Spalding, they upcycled select limited edition basketballs to hold some of your beloved plants, flowers and other shrubs. 

Each product is manufactured with a genuine leather Spalding ball from designer John Elliott’s F/W 2017 collection. This is the first time these balls will be available for purchase, and we can't guarantee they'll remain stocked for long. They're a personalized piece of furniture that looks great next to your favorite pair of sneakers or signed Michael Jordan jersey.
