Recycle tea bags

October 10th, 2011 - 

What can you do with old tea bags? Planetgreen suggests you could feed the plants in your garden or pots. The tea bags contain some substances that can enrich the soil and also they feed the earthworms. Apart of this, you can use tea bags to enrich your compost. Or you can boil again and again the tea bag and with the water resulted, you can water your plants. In case you have eye circles, this is already well-known: to put the tea bags on your eyes. If you are an artist, you can recycle old tea bags and make some installations out of
them. I used myself the water resulted from boiling the tea bags to paint with it. In fact, there is one artist in the history of art that used fruit juices and tea to paint instead of watercolors:
William Turner.
