Turn Your Old Seven Days Into an Eco-Friendly Planting Pot 

When you're finished reading your copy of Seven Days, you can use it to make your own planting pots. When your plants are ready, you can put the pots right into the soil and the newspaper will break down. Happy planting!

What you need:

  • newspaper
  • bottle
  • scissors
  • soil
  • seeds

1. Cut the newspaper in half.


2. Wrap the paper around the bottle as shown in the following photo.


3. Fold the excess paper toward the bottom of the bottle.


4. Remove the pot from the bottle and flatten the bottom of the pot.


5. Fill the pot with soil.


6. Plant your seeds and water!


7. Be sure to label them so you'll remember what kind of plants they are.
