People Are Using Toilet Paper Rolls To Make Biodegradable Pots For Plants And It’s Genius

Gone are the days where we plant our vegetables or house plants in a boring tan pot that you can get from Walmart or a hardware store. 

For a more biodegradable option, plant enthusiasts are cutting toilet paper rolls in half, and making them into pots for plants!

Not only will you be doing a favor for Mother Earth, but toilet paper rolls are also an item you should already have around the house.

To create your own pot from toilet paper rolls, start by making a series of 1 to 1 1/2 inch cuts around one end of the roll. 

Then, fold the cut sections in towards the center to create a stable bottom for your plant.
