Unless you’re a religious composter, there are definitely a few things you’ve been throwing in the trash that could easily be used again.
Take eggshells, for instance. We all love eggs, but toss the shells when we’re done—and that’s a big no-no!
Eggshells are rich in calcium, which makes them excellent for the soil in your garden, especially if you grow tomatoes (they help fight blossom end rot).
Once you’ve saved up a pretty nice stash of eggshells, all you have to do is pop them into the blender and let the machine work its magic.
Blend the shells until they’ve been ground into a light powdery dust. That way, you can sprinkle the eggshells directly into your soil outside.
Be warned: These are eggshells we’re talking about here, so the dust will not smell like lavender and roses.
Aside from the stench in your kitchen, you’ll definitely want to make sure your blender is totally clean before making your next smoothie.
According to the blog Graceful Little Honey Bee, if you’re looking to add a little extra boost to your garden soil, you can also sprinkle any leftover coffee grounds you have at home!
