How to Reuse Our Packaging: Turn Your Boxes into Herb Gardens
We've all been there – you receive your essential goodies, and then you're left wondering, "What do I even do with this box?" Sure, you could toss it in the recycling bin, but we both know that's not the conscious choice we want to make. That's why we've come up with a simple solution that not only reduces waste but also helps you embrace a zero-waste lifestyle.
Step 1: Give Your Box Another Life
Once you've unpacked your essentials, don't rush to dispose of the box just yet. Instead, find a sunny spot on your kitchen countertop where the box can bask in the sunlight.
Step 2: Add Some Soil
Visit your local nursery to support your community and get some nutrient-rich soil to fill your box. These minerals are like a power-up for your future herb garden.
Step 3: Now, Add Your Seeds
Here's where the fun begins! Choose your favorite seeds; ideal options for beginners include herbs and botanicals like basil, rosemary, lavender, and thyme.
Step 4: Add Some Water
Give your soon-to-be herbs a drink by sprinkling water to moisten the soil. It's important to keep it adequately moist to support your seeds' growth.
Step 5: Now, Be Patient – Good Things Take Time
In just a few days, you'll witness the magic as your tiny seeds sprout into lively plants. With a little love and care, including occasional watering and plenty of natural sunlight, your green companions will flourish, adding a touch of nature to your home while naturally producing oxygen.
And there you have it – a creative way to reuse packaging and cultivate a sustainable, herb-filled kitchen oasis. Happy gardening! 🌿🌱
