Stop Throwing Away Those Plastic Utensils. Here’s 5 Reasons Why You Should Plant Them Instead

Eating your food with plastic utensils is a good idea, especially if you hate the washing part. Where do these end after you finish your meal? In the trashcan? Wrong move.

There are so many ways to use plastic utensils, and your kids will have fun helping you do the job.

Some people can’t find the connection between plastic utensils and gardening. It’s time to put your creativity ‘on,’ and re-use plastic forks and spoons. You will never ever discard them.

  1. Keep pests away

Plastic utensils will protect your garden from both pets and pests.

“I figured I would at least buy clear plastic, less visible than white. And it is! I had to get down even with the ground to capture these next pictures of the cutlery art in my garden.

So far it seems to be working. Oh and when you want clear…you get the whole set. Forks, knives and spoons…but they’re all good. What furry little kitty bum wants to be caught crouching over a knife?” says the author of Danger Garden.

Try this, and remove the plastic after your plants come out. Keep in mind that clear plastic is a better option, and your garden will look pretty.

  1. Label garden plants

Believe it or not, plastic forks are the cheapest labeling items you can get.

“At the nursery, they had some garden labels you could buy for about $4.50 a pack, with what looked like about 20 in a pack. I have 100 squares in my garden… am I going to spend $25 just so I can label them all?!? Uh… no,” explains the blogger.

  1. Improve your labeling game

Plastic utensils don’t have to be boring. Use them as decorative labeling items. Simple as that.

  1. Make a decorative fence

Just line up used plastic utensils, and squirrels will never ever enter your garden.
