Achieving Zero Waste

My beautiful tulip bulbs I bought from my local grocrey store died. A lot of people tend to buy plants like daffodils, tulips, and lilys in the spring especially for Easter.
This morning, I thought it would be a good idea to challenge myself to achieving zero waste with my purchase so that people can see the possibilities of reusing packaging.
So, I took a paper bag from a recent purchase my husband made at the hardware store. I carefully cut off the stems and flowers then put them in my compost bin. I used a blunt knife and loosened the bulbs. There was a dense root system in there.
I put the bulbs in the bag for storage to plant in the fall. Here is a link to storing bulbs and tubers if you haven't done this before. http://
