Do It Yourself: Zero Waste Upcycled Seed Starter Pods
Spring is (finally) here which means it is time to start seeds! I am very eager for cucumbers this year so I started them indoors using upcycled seed pods.
There is one thing you definitely have in your home right now that you can upcycle into a seed pod: toilet paper roll! My favorite thing about these seed pods is that they are biodegradable and cost me nothing.
I used seed pods wrapped in mesh (which doesn’t compost) that came with a kit I bought but after running out of seed pods I started to make my own. I used to toss my toilet paper rolls straight in the compost but I knew there was a better way to upcycle them.

This is so easy you can involve your kids too.
Note: Be careful handling seed pods when they are wet because they may fall apart. Hold them from the bottom if you have to move them.
