Another gardening/recycling tip

So, per a previous post, I have been saving my toilet paper and paper towel rolls for the purpose of making starter pots...then I came across this webpage: http://www.geocities.com/newspaperpots/
In the US, most newspapers use soy-based black ink (I recommend not using colored ink newspaper), which is safe for the seedlings, and can also be later transferred into the garden.  We get a local advertisement printed like newspaper once per week, and every week when I'm done with it, I just fold the paper into the pots.  When it is time for me to start my vegetables, I should have enough pots made.
