What to do with those little yellow bags from LUSH? Turn them in to plant starter pots! Note: I don’t recommend using bags that have a lot of residue in them. I used bags that held soap bars, shampoo bars, massage bars, etc. Bubbleroons and bath melts seem to leave too much soap behind.

Instructions

  1. Save up Lush bags, or any papers that use safe dyes (most ads do NOT use safe dye).
  2. Cut up paper into strips or chunks. This goes faster if you have a paper shredder.
  3. Toss papers into a blender, turn on and add water as *needed* to blend. DO NOT add too much water; less is better.
  4. Squeeze out extra water from paper pulp goop.
  5. Press pulp into muffin tin, going up around the sides; I used silicone since it allows things to spring free better, but any kind of tin will do.
  6. Allow to dry overnight (you can also “bake” on a low setting like 250 for an hour or so and then let dry overnight).
  7. Pop your seed sprouter cups free from mold, add dirt, and plant some seeds!
