Reusing Newspaper as biodegradable planter

After you’ve read the news of the day and clipped out coupons and deals, your newspaper is left with pages and pages that just end up in the garbage or recycling. Try our thrifty suggestions and recycled craft projects to make the most of all that precious paper for a Weed Barrier or a Biodegradable Planter.

Biodegradable Planter: Recycle newspaper with an easy-to-fold, biodegradable newspaper pot. Plant directly into the ground and let it decompose while protecting the plant’s root system.

Weed Barrier: Set layers of newspaper on the ground before installing a raised garden bed to keep weeds at bay, since they’ll have a hard time popping up through the layers.
