Spring is officially in full swing, and, if you live in a part of the country where the weather has at long last begun to show signs of the season (read: no snow!), then you may just be in gardening mode too (if you’re not, but want to be, by the way, we have some great tips for getting started).

To get your garden going, you’re going to (of course) need to start your seeds. If you want to start some seeds but want to do it in a fabulously green manner, consider nixing the purchasing of new pots and making your own DIY newspaper pots instead! This is a great way to repurpose paper that may have otherwise been tossed – and you’ll get your seeds growing ASAP – a win-win in our book!

Check out the video for the how-to on these nifty little DIY newspaper pots for seed starters!
