This weekend my gardens – both my freshly planted annual flowerpots and my veggie garden faced imminent disaster: FROST! That’s right, Chicagoland’s unpredictable weather is consistent in it’s unpredictability.
At 8:00 PM Saturday night I was out in the dark in my jammies covering every annual plant in sight. It was a mad dash to save the little babies.
In the process I invented a great way to recycle your old plastic shopping bags – Flower Pot Condoms. Okay, let’s call them Flower Pot Hats….errr something.
According to Indiana University, more than 1.6 billion gallons of oil are used yearly for the production of plastic bags alone here in the United States. For gosh sakes people, find creative ways to reuse them – do the right thing.
My creative idea? See in the short video above how I saved my garden babies with some fabulous Flower Pot covers.
Make a difference today and comment below – let me know your creative ways to reuse plastic bags too!
