Do you eat a lot of pistachios? Save those shells and use them to help your indoor houseplants. First, if the shells are salted, soak them in water and give them a good rinse to remove all of the salt. Then fill the bottom of a pot up to 1 inch with shells, depending on the size of the pot. Fill with soil and pot your new houseplant. The shells help with drainage, and over time they will degrade into beneficial mulch. You can use old shells as mulch in your garden, too.
