Do you enjoy going to your local coffee house for that ‘perfect’ cup of coffee?
What do you do with the cup afterward…..throw it in the trash?
How about using the coffee sleeves to start seeds in?
Simply put on a tray and fill with planting mix. Then plant your favorite seeds.
And while you’re at it, how about recycling the entire cup as well?
Simply cut the cup in half using a knife and then cut out the bottom and you have 2 additional planters.
When ready for transplant, simply plant the entire coffee sleeve in the soil (the cardboard will breakdown in the soil). For the cup planters, which won’t breakdown in the soil, simply place the entire planter (and plant) in your prepared hole and then cut down the side, with scissors, and carefully remove the cup planter and fill in with soil.
You can find more information on how to start your own seeds at this link: “Starting Seeds Indoors”
So next time you enjoy your ‘perfect’ cup of coffee, instead of throwing it in the trash; use it to make your own planters!
