***THIS IS ABOUT PLASTIC SEQUESTRATION IN ORDER TO CATALYZE CARBON SEQUESTRATION***
– saving seed from fruit and local trees…
+ recycling trash containers into tree pots…
+ composting kitchen scraps and all organic matter (card paper, non-glossy cardboard, egg cartons, …)
SEED + COMPOST (+CONTAINERS) = TREES (one of the most important commodities of our future)
important note: Please.. do not purchase/consume wasteful products to fake-recycle it. We personally collect all the cardboard, plastic, and other trash/recycling out of our communities garbage. And if any wasteful products already pass through you, now you know what you should do. 🌲
Shown in the above picture in the larger, right box – are tamarind and moringa seedlings growing out in thick tubes of cardboard. Which will last over a year, and may be planted whole into the ground. In the smaller box, there are several plastic drink bottles with there bottoms cut off, to allow another inch or two of soil depth for the tree seedlings (compared to cutting off the top – bottleneck portion of the plastic). A drainage hole is punctured through the bottle cap.
These are all recent fig divisions that are settling into there new containers. Far right, white colored pots are 1 gallon – plastic water jugs with the tops cut off, and then the inside walls lined with cardboard to protect the figs roots from any light. These figs will be in these pots for under a year, at which time the cardboard can be replaced. Other temporary (1 year) pot liners for clear containers could be most other paper trash or even a thick lining of straw/dry grass.
