Saving money and Planet Earth

Something small that I started doing just a few short months ago is looking at how we view “trash” in our house. It was somewhat unconscious. I was looking at these produce containers thinking “why don’t I use these to start some seeds?” In my brain I was saving money by not having to buy seed starting flats for things like flowers. And then one night while eating take out, we got these plastic to-go containers with clear lids and vent holes. I cleaned them up and now have some seed starting trays! It has showed me how much waste a household of 2 generates that can actually be repurposed and not end up in a landfill.
