  1. This would be great to add into smoothies.

  2. What about using glass containers vs plastic, will it still work the same?

  3. Back when i was in 3rd grade we use to do this all the time but we never
    used dirt. We would lay a moist paper towel down first, then the seeds, and
    then lay another moist paper towel on top.

  4. EXCELLENT! I’m gonna start some tomorrow. My wife and I both enjoy
    salads.

  5. Really smart & cool idea that I will definitely try. I was thinking about
    getting a small window shelf with 4 layers/4 shelves & then getting 5 of
    those black garden trays hopefully with clear tops & growing 4 trays of
    sprouts in those inside of the whole entire window & then you could grow
    way more to have on your salads & to juice or put in smoothies. You could
    probably grow other thing also using that same method in every windows in
    your home/house or apartment & in a patio door you could probably have a
    whole entire garden of food. I love this idea & growing it in the
    McDonald’s container is very funny & eye opening at the same time. Real
    food in a McDonald’s container, I love it. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Such a good idea! Better than buying sprouts all the time if you like them!

  7. *Avoid plastic even if it’s food grade or BPA free, all plastics are toxic
    regardless food grade or not, and don’t use paper that contains industrial
    toxic chemical. Toilet paper, paper tissue and paper towel contain TOXIC
    chemicals, so don’t use them this way. Even organic virgin pulp paper towel
    that you can get at local supermarket or health food store is not suitable
    for this purpose because of the unknown natural substances in the wood pulp
    maybe harmful to health.*

    *Best material is pure high quality glass. Use glass container, bowl or
    dish with glass cover. Use organic not-bleached, not-printed and
    not-colored cotton towel or cloth.*

  8. This is so ironic :) Thank you for sharing!!

  9. Kudos on reusing a fast food plastic container to grow real food! Love it! :-)

  18. I rewatched this video. I’m planning on doing this tomorrow. The fresh

  19. I’m also using the old plastic cups as pots for my seedlings that i started

    but the radish was a little spicy. thanks bro!

    I would never eat a McDonalds salad, they’re terrible for you. I would
    never use McDonalds plastic to grow my food, they’re terrible for you. The
