Find a new way to love your garbage…by growing things in it!
- Collect/recycle a container, this could be a coffee cup, to-go container, or even a plastic bag! Make sure to punch a few holes in the bottom for water drainage.
- Take any biodegradable substance, food leftovers, paper shreds, add a little fertilizer and try to balance wet and dry ingredients to make a good soil texture. Add water periodically as it evaporates to continue the decomposition process.
- Sprinkle a few seeds, and wait for your plant to sprout! A few easy plants to grow indoors include: Marigolds, Nasturtium, Pansy, Mint, and Basil.
