5 ways to repurpose containers in your garden

It’s Earth Day and that got us thinking over here at Toby’s and Genesis. While our packaging is fully recyclable, it’s always easier on the environment to reuse and repurpose before recycling. Just like yogurt containers and water bottles, there’s no reason not to repurpose the packaging when you can!

Since it’s prime planting season around Eugene, we took used Toby’s and Genesis containers to the garden. Here’s just a quick list of easy things to do in your garden this spring and summer. And, most of these are kid-friendly, so they make great family and weekend crafts!

5 ways torepurpose containers for

Start seeds

When it’s too cold to start seeds in the ground or outside, Toby’s Tofu containers (especially the larger ones) are a great way to get them going. And, they’re the perfect size to hold most baby plants until they’re ready to be transferred outside. Just remember to poke a hole in the bottom of the container to allow for drainage!

Seeds-starter

Pro Tip: When you’re trying to get your seeds to germinate, set them in front of a window and use a Toby’s Dressing bottle as mini make-shift greenhouse. Genesis Juice bottles work for this too, but they can be a little tiny depending on what you’re growing.

Pest control
If you’re having problems with slugs in your garden, dig a little hole the size of a small Toby’s Tofu container near any plants you’re worried about. Place the Toby’s Tofu container so it’s level with the ground, and fill with beer or salted water. To bait your pests even more, cover the rim with sliced potatoes.

Effective watering

Take a hammer and large nail to an extra (empty) Genesis Juice bottle, and make several holes up and down the container. If you’re having trouble getting large enough holes, you might want to quickly take a drill to the container. Dig a hole in the garden next to a plant that needs base watering (nightshades, especially). Water inside the juice bottle from now on, and you’ll be watering the roots instead of the leaves!

Bird feeder
This one requires a little more hands-on work, so turn it into a fun family craft. The kids will love it! You’ll need one small Toby’s Tofu container (without the lid), one empty bottle of Genesis Juice, a knife, and strong glue.

Process:  With the knife, slice a few small squares around the base of the juice bottle (between 1/4 and 1/2 inch), to allow for the filling of the bottom of the feeder. Next, take your glue (we recommend hot glue if you’re not hanging it and something stronger, like super glue, if you are hanging it) and generously apply to the bottom of the juice bottle. Firmly press the juice bottle to the center of the Toby’s container (as shown below).

Wait for the glue to dry fully (shouldn’t take long, depending on the glue you used). Fill the juice bottle with bird seed, and get ready for the birds!

Vases (for when you’re cutting flowers out of your garden!)
You could really get crafty with these, like covering in decoupage or painting them, but we like them just how they are! They’re so delicate with just a few flowers, and they really brightened up our office!
