Recently the obscene amount of garbage that people create has been bothering me a little more than normal for some reason. There was no big epiphany involved, it just started bothering me one day. Since then I have been trying to reuse things that I may not have reused before, and it’s been interesting to say the very least.
About six weeks ago the pharmacy in the hospital where I work purchased new organizing bins for their cabinets, and guess what they were going to do with the old ones. EXACTLY!! They were throwing them away. Now I understand that they had no reason to keep them but that was a lot of plastic being thrown into the garbage. I took a few, even though at the time I had no idea what I would do with them. At this point I was also bringing home pallets that were going to be thrown away so the little blue bins just got thrown into the mess.
Fast forward to three weeks ago when I decided I would use them to start my corn seeds. I wasn’t exactly sure how at the time, but the decision was made. Of course when you live in Utah you know not to planet anything to early so I only started them today to plant in the ground in about two weeks.
Here is the step by step with pictures:
