Great Info! I love to recycle.
TP rolls are great for keeping your extention cords etc. under control in a drawer too. Gift wrap rolls are great for sword fights with the kids. LOL

I have been using the two liter bottles as mini greenhouses for years.

I love to share plants but don't care to give away my nice pots so I use gallon milk jugs. Just cut the top off & poke a few holes in the bottoms. If you cut it right you can use the top as a scoop too.

Yep, the TP and paper towel rolls are great, especially for those plants like Morning Glory that do not like to have their roots disturbed. Of course, I used a tall one since it gets long roots quickly.

You can also use the egg containers that are made of recycled material. Just cut them apart before potting.
