RE-Think That Package

When you’re looking for Earth-friendly products, are you considering the package, too? When it comes to packaging, we think the greenest choices are reusable and recyclable.

Recycling is a great way to reduce waste and conserve resources. Reusing packaging is another good choice — and it can be fun, too.

For example, when you’ve eaten all the tasty Earthbound organic salad, our containers are ready for a new career holding something else…like a windowsill garden! They make great starter planters for baby lettuces and other plants, indoors and out.

 

Start with rich, moist organic starter mix without synthetic ingredients or herbicides, and organic seeds or seedlings.

 

Use the clamshells by themselves, or slip them into decorative planters for a finished look.

 

Place your planters in a sunny spot indoors or out, and watch your greens grow!

 

Get easy step-by-step video tips — and a downloadable instruction sheet — on our Grow Something Green page. Have fun!

I don't recycle them by planting, I recycle by putting leftovers in them or taking food to friends/families houses. That way I don't have to worry about getting my container back.

I use the clamshell containers (and others) to send baked goods home with family.  It saves buying containers all the time!

I love the clamshell gardens, been doing this idea from you for about 2 years.  I think it is a wonderful Eath Day idea as well!

By: khelmira

I start almost all of my garden plants myself. I have been using Earthbound boxes with Jiffy 7s in my greehouse for years and am glad to see that on your site. The are just the right size to start six or eight seedlings. The lid makes a nice cover and also helps to keep curious mice away. I use a heating pad or other warmers underneath and find my seedlings sprout within days.
