Home Gardening & Plastic Free July

Val's home veggie gardenAt Spread The Love®, we plan on leaving the planet in a better place than how we found it. We never use palm oil, a major driver of deforestation, and we love our BPA-free 15lb. pails of UNSALTED Almond Butter and NAKED Organic Peanut Butter that reduce our environmental impact as we use less jars and ship less frequently this way to our customers.

There’s also no better way to reuse our jars and pails than with an at home garden! Regrow green onions in a window sill jar or drill a few holes into our pails for the perfect pot. Put some love on the dinner table with your own fresh veggies by checking out these gardening tips! 

1. Get the right tools - if there are 4 tools in our garden we can't live without, it would be gloves, pruner, trowel, watering pot/hose.

2. Start with herbs, kale, lettuce - they are easiest to grow and you don't have to buy expensive herbs from the store. 

3. Compost (a whole 'nother subject) if you can - this can be plant food to make your soil/plants healthy.

4. Invest in good soil especially for a veggie garden - we started with biodynamic soil.

If you are joining Plastic Free July to reduce your environmental impact, it is a good option to upcycle or reuse jars. For more ways to reuse your jars, read our past blog post on Five Ways To Reuse Nut Butter Jars
