Planter Starter Pack Business

Gardening has become a very great and versatile pastime this past year. It’s a great choice for those who are stuck at home, and a perfect choice for those who want a calming pastime. Planting is also great for those who have a small place since there are plants that can live in a small space. However, the greatest barrier for planting has always been starting to learn. Planting requires a lot of knowledge and a bit of budget to start, and one wrong move can easily ruin the experience. Planting choices also come into play because people can get decision fatigue from picking the plant they want to start with. In the end, people usually avoid such a hobby because of the high barrier. Information can also vary because of the high volume of gardening knowledge one can find in bookstores, online, and even in group meetups.

So with this kind of barrier, how can one be enticed to start their garden, how can a newbie get their feet wet in the hobby that is gardening? Well, this sounds like a clever business opportunity. A great way to help people in starting is to help them understand planting without much preparation. One of the best ways is to give people a planter that has all of the plant’s needs in one handy package. A 5 Gallon Bucket that has a proper amount of planting soil, seeds, and fertilizers. Giving people the fastest way to get into planting is the best way to help them understand that planting is fun and can be a great hobby to get into. It’s also the best way to fix the starting barrier of newbies getting into planting while also getting a bit of business experience along the way.

Homemade Ice Cream Business

Ice cream is considered to be the ultimate dessert. This is why Ice Cream is a great choice when it comes to food businesses. The ingredients don’t cost as much except for the freezer but with a high amount of customer range, the expenses can easily be managed. However, ice cream can be a bit tricky when it comes to storage. First of all, ice cream sticks to its container, so the container mustn’t break from the tension of the freezer and the ice cream’s thickness. 2nd, ice cream is comprised of milk which is a very sensitive food ingredient, so the material is also important. 3rd, ice cream needs to be with a container that has a high-temperature limit so it won’t break.

So what material has a high-temperature limit, is food grade, and does not break easily? Well, 5 Gallon Food Grade Buckets are a great contender. They are perfect for storing food, they do not break easily, and they have a high temperature limit, especially in the cold. BPA Free Plastics are also perfect for food storage since they do not carry any risk when used with food. BPA is also known as Bisphenol A, which is the main reason why plastics have the stigma of being a bad food container. 5 Gallons are also a great measurement for ice cream since it constantly transforms from being liquid or solid, having a big

Food Truck Business

Food Trucks have been on the rise ever since the pandemic started. This small business study has shown that food trucks are a growing force with no brakes in sight. One of the reasons is food trucks don’t really have a feeding area and people mostly buy and eat the food somewhere else which is a great way to save up on operation costs.

Food Trucks also need to carry a big amount of ingredients or pre-prepared food to feed their customers. Some food trucks carry fridges for their food, so they would also need to have a food container that can survive freezing temperatures. With that said, it’s quite obvious that 5 Gallon Buckets are the perfect fit for this food truck-related problem. A 5 Gallon Food Grade Bucket is perfect for storing a lot of food, it can also stand freezing temperatures for food that requires cold storage.

Repurposing Guru

One of the greatest problems with households is hoarding. It has become a big issue when people tend to carry a lot of unusable items because it has been proven that it causes psychological and sometimes even physical problems. One of the biggest worries is anxiety due to separation from the hoarded items. Hoarders tend to put a lot of value on the items they hoarded which is the main crux of the problem. Hoarding also eats the living spaces of the hoarders making it a problem in the long run. So, add in anxiety plus a creeping force that eats space, then it becomes a hoarder’s worst nightmare.

So how does one combat hoarding? How can the energy of hoarding be changed into something positive? Maybe one can repurpose it? Repurposing is a great way to make something old, useless, and slightly broken into something useful, creative, and fun. Repurposing is a great source of relieving stress since it’s an active way to preserve the hoarded items for something with more purpose and use. A great start in the repurposing journey is to teach people that one item has the potential to become anything with enough creativity. Teaching repurposing can be a tough job but a great trick for this is to find an item that’s perfect to convey the idea of repurposing. Items such as the ever-reliable 5 Gallon Bucket.

5 Gallon Buckets have a lot of repurposing potential because of their size, material, and depth. A hollow item is great for creative uses since it can be easily modified with a few color changes and designs. With enough research and practice, teaching repurposing to people using 5 Gallon Buckets can be a great source of inspiration for people like hoarders, and it can be a great source of income.
