Don’t toss your plastic utensils. Here are 8 clever reasons why you should plant them instead

These days people are looking to be more environmentally conscious, which means using reusable utensils instead of plastic ones. However, if you have to use plastic utensils there are ways that you can reuse them instead of just tossing them out after eating one meal.

Plastic utensils can work wonders for your garden. Here are eight ways you can use them:

Deter Garden Pests

Place plastic utensils in your garden to keep pests that might sabotage growth, like dogs and cats, at bay. They won’t want to maneuver around the pointed objects where your fruits, veggies, and flowers are in the process of growing.

If you have animals who like to trounce or do their business in your garden, you’ll want to use this option. You can remove the cutlery when your plants grow.
