Seeds the Day


What It Is: Happy Earth Day everyone! Today I thought it’d be nice to feature a quirky take on a green gift idea. Namely, in the form of finally finding a use for your avocado pits. If you’re a fan of the green stuff, in fact, this is a must-have! AvoSeedo is a handy gadget that makes seeding your own avocado tree a snap, without a previously messy and inaccurate ‘toothpick method’. Simply insert your pit inside an AvoSeedo and place it in water for a totally fuss-proof way to germinate your seed.

Who It’s For: Your foodie friend. Your green thumbed friend. Your gadget-loving friend.

What It Costs: From $12.99 USD for one AvoSeedo (with free worldwide shipping).

Where It’s At: Check out the AvoSeedo website!

BONUS entry into my Crux Supply Co. giveaway – tell me in the comments below, what are you doing to celebrate Earth Day today? What do you think of this gift idea?

    Funny, I put one by my sink last night to try, I need that gadget.

    Hey someone was thinking! I’ve tried the toothpick method several times and it has never worked. I’d try this one for sure! I’m going to purchase a tree to plant for earth day 🙂

    I think this would be a cute classroom idea. For earth day I’m going to leave the lights off more and have a garage sale.

    We’ll be turning the lights down – I never each avocados so I don’t have a need for this gadget.

    I will be more conscious of waste (water, electricity, garbage, etc. ) even more than I normally do.

    Crux Supply Co. bonus entry: I had a nap to celebrate Earth Day – reduce energy 😉 I think this gift idea will show up at the dollar store for a lot less & then I’ll consider buying one since I haven’t figured out how to get my pit to grow. Thanks.
