The Paper Potter

It may not be spring just yet but I saw The Paper Potter during my V-day gift shopping and thought what a great Valentine’s Day gift or even for wishful spring thinking. The potter is made from FSC certified wood, which makes purchasing it even more worth it.
Soon you will be starting our gardens and instead of buying potters now you can make your own from paper that you were either going to throw away or I hope recycle. Once again the 3R’s: Reduce, Recycle & Reuse! By utilizing The Paper Potter you are making this years gardening experience even more rewarding by saving money, saving trees and adding one more step of sustainability to your experience.
If you participate in a community garden talk to the management and see if they would like to purchase multiple Paper Potters for the gardeners to use. If you are a teacher this is an excellent science project for your students to learn about gardening and sustainability.


This ingenious device enables you to turn strips of old newspaper into biodegradable plant pots for seedlings.
Once you have hardened off the young plants, transplant them in their biodegradable paper pots without damaging their tender roots.
Children love making paper pots and this innovative and simple gadget can be used to teach an invaluable lesson about sustainable living.

Paper Potter Instructions:
1. Cut dry newspapers into strips (8cm x 57cm approx.)
2. Roll strip loosely around potter and roughly fold over excess paper.
3. Press potter onto base.
4. Remove pot & fill with growing medium.
5. Plant seedling or sow seeds directly.
6. Paper pot will biodegrade when transplanted to garden.

Pot is approx. 5 ½ inches high. Manufactured by Nether Wallop Trading Co. Ltd. Made in England. Made of FSC certified wood sourced from managed woodlands.

Recycled Notes

Hearts Note Cube 3.5″ X 3.5″ X 3.5″ – (700 Blank Tear-off Non-adhesive Sheets with Pen Hole), Made in USA of 100% Recycled Paper

I love to decorate my desk with many a colorful item. I try to be as mindful as possible with what I purchase to brighten up my desk. I want my desk to reflect my personality. I prefer all my paper products to be recycled. I try to search out and buy recycled, recyclable or reused clips, bands, pens etc. Sometimes though some recycled items are a bit boring to look at. This isn’t as true now as it used to be which makes it a bit more appealing for people who otherwise wouldn’t care about recycled products. I found this cute little note pad that is great for a gift for a co-worker, teacher or even someone going to their first job. This Hearts Note Cube super cute and very colorful which are two of my favorite things!

Product Description:
Bring some color into your office with this self-stick note cube full of colorful hearts. Serves as a gift for friends or teachers that will brighten up any office space. The 4-color process image is superior to similar cubes with silk-screened graphics. The design is repeated on each of the four panels of the cube. The decorative top sheet provides an attractive presentation for gifts, and tears off to reveal the blank pages of the notecube. A pre-drilled pen hole in the corner keeps a pen handy. This may be multi-colored, but it is also green: printed on FSC-certified, 100% recycled post-consumer fiber. The Hearts memo cube makes a thoughtful gift on many levels, but most of all, this useful 700-page note cube lasts a great deal longer than a box of chocolates!
