You can also turn old bottles into recycled seed starter pots! These are great because the clear ones also act like a small greenhouse, allowing your plants to get the nutrients they need!
If you take the outside of a lemon (or other citrus) and shell it out, then you can use it as a seed starter! I know it sounds crazy, but it’s super productive and puts your food scraps to good use around the home!
Another great food scrap seed starter is an eggshell. The shell contains lots of nutrients that give your seed energy and health benefits that they probably wouldn’t get otherwise! Plus, you can put these straight into the ground, if you want!
Did you know you could use old newspapers to make seed starters? I love this idea because it really puts everything to use—no more waste! Simply follow the instructions linked to create them!
An old egg carton can be used as seed starter pot! Just fill the spots with soil, put your seed in it, and then you’re good!
Yogurt cups. Yes, that’s right, you can use old yogurt cups to be seed starter pots for your plants! It’s as easy as filling them up with the soil (adding a drain hole if needed), and then letting nature do the rest!
Now, this isn’t possible with all milk cartons, but a lot of them are able to be used to create a seed starter pot. Just cut them open, add the soil, and then get your seeds growing! Paper cartons work best!

K-cups are a super easy way to get your seed starter. All you need to do is clean them out, fill them with the soil, and then put the seed in it. It shouldn’t take long for the seed to start sprouting!
