Don’t throw out your milk cartons recycle them as hanging planters. Look for those packets of seeds you never got round to planting, pierce a few holes in the bottom of the container and add some soil - hey presto πŸ€— flowers or herbs will grow!

Another use for your old milk cartons!! Pierce a few holes in the bottom for drainage, cut the top and side off leaving the handle intact. Add soil and a sprinkle of seeds - herbs are good! Tie string around the handle and hang outdoors to decorate the space!! Enjoy :)
