Don’t throw away those yogurt cups! Repurpose them to start your indoor herb garden.

It is finally Spring, and I am ready to do all of my favorite springtime things! With warmer weather, the kids and I are outside a lot. We really enjoy soaking up that sun.

Earth Day usually kicks off our months in the sun! It’s the weekend we clean up our flower beds and plan our vegetable garden. The kids love being involved in not only the planning of our garden but they love seeing all of their hard work all summer long.

This year, I am adding another garden to our list: an indoor herb garden. I do a lot of cooking and fresh herbs are definitely a must. But I don’t have a lot of empty space for a big herb garden. Lucky for me, herbs are remarkably hardy and tend to thrive in small spaces.

To start my indoor herb garden, I needed the right size container. And here is where we take our eco-friendliness to the next level!

Did you know? Stonyfield® Organic Kids® yogurt multipacks are made from plants? Cups made from plants have a lower carbon footprint and are better for the environment than petroleum based cups. This makes them the perfect cup for my indoor herb garden!

Because Stonyfield® Organic Kids® yogurts are certified organic and Non- GMO Project verified, that means each cup is always made without the use of toxic persistent pesticides, artificial hormones, antibiotics and GMOs.

For my indoor herb garden, I went with my go-to herbs: basil, rosemary, parsley, and thyme. Not only do these herbs add fresh flavors to my recipes, they smell great and are a pretty addition to any kitchen.

To start, clean out your yogurt cups thoroughly and dry. Once dry, cut a hole in the bottom of each cup for drainage.

You can go as fancy or laid back with your indoor garden as you want. You can wrap your Stonyfield® Organic Kids® yogurt cups with paper or leave them au natural! I decided not to wrap them and fit them in this concrete plant holder for a more rustic look.

When planning your herb garden, don’t forget about light and water! They are the most important factors in a successful indoor herb garden. Water your herbs frequently, and your plants should receive 6 to 8 hours of light a day. If you have a few hours of sun at one window and then a few hours at another, consider a movable arrangement that you can move from window to window for optimal light exposure.

This is where my concrete box comes in! It makes it easy for me to move my herbs around so that they get enough light.

Celebrate Earth Month and snack on the only kid’s yogurt that comes in plant-based cups. If you are looking to create your own indoor herb garden using Stonyfield® Organic Kids®, they have a new look! But even with a fresh new look, Stonyfield® Organic Kids® is still the #1 organic kid’s yogurt brand.

Organic certification matters because just calling something natural isn’t a guarantee. You can be sure that when you see the USDA Organic label, the food it’s attached to was made by farmers who don’t plant GMO crops OR give their animals – like the dairy cows that make our milk – GMO feed.  Learn more on their site
