Cool Idea: Potless Plants

Did you know that every year about 80 million tons of plastic end up needing to be recycled? Much of this is thrown away, which is bad news for the environment. At my house, I have a stack of plastic garden pots that have been gathering over time. I try to re-use them when starting seeds, but often times they just end up sitting in the corner, ugly and unused.

If you, like me, are looking for a better solution, then head down to the nearest Home Depot store and grab some PotLess Plants when you're starting your garden. Planted in earth-friendly, biodegradable containers, these flowers use containers that decompose in the soil as the plants grow. Available at Home Depot stores (though not online), this product provides gardeners with an eco-friendly and convenient alternative to plastic trays and pots. Plants and flowers come in a paper six-pack carrier. When you're ready to plant, just stick one — or all six — of the biodegradable containers into the ground to plant. No pots to throw away, no massaging the seedlings out of their containers. Easy as can be.
