Happy Earth Day! April 22, 2016
We are SO excited about Earth Day! Not just because the term “going green” makes us think of a delicious HelloFresh box, but also because it’s one day where everyone joins forces for a cause that’s bigger than all of us. So, besides recycling your HelloFresh box (either the regular way or, of course, by making it into a spaceship to play with your kids), we have created a super fun way to celebrate today!
This fun little project not only involves recycling and getting your hands a little dirty on Earth Day, but also leaves you with a fun windowsill garden for the start of spring! It’s quick, easy, and affordable to create!
- Take 6 bottom parts of empty eggshells, rinse, and place them in a halved egg carton
- Spoon some soil into the shells until they’re full
- Sprinkle a couple of cress seeds onto the soil
- Using a butter knife, gently press the seeds into the soil
Water frequently and don’t like the soil dry out. When your cress seedlings start to grow big and tall, re-pot them in something a little bigger or even move them outside if you have a garden!
Happy Earth Day, Happy Planting, and Happy Cooking with your new home grown ingredients!
