Mateless socks are 'great for recycling'
Being environmentally-friendly and fun is easy for Lenore MacLeod-Bickley, who has used orphan socks to make her plant pots look fantastic.

Writing for eco-happy website Crafting a Green World, the hosiery fan shows everyone that a sock can be pulled over a flowerpot, cut to size and then given a shrub to hold, making sure that people finding it hard to part with their socks can still see them every single day.

Lenore continued: "They also work with jars and pots of various sizes, since the socks have a little bit of a stretch to them.

"This is a great recycling project that is fun and easy, and gives those mateless socks a second chance."

However, Tony Gabriele of the Detroit Daily Press no doubt still has his suspicions about where his single socks go, with the columnist already formulating theories that single socks are making a personal bid for freedom or that his dryer is really to blame.
