The fun part will be finding them, since most everyone either uses a cell phone or cordless. I have seen them a the dollar store and depending on the length that you cut them into, I do suggest a minimum of at least 5 curls, will determine how many you get. They can be used year after year after year.

Thanks for another green idea!
I think that the plastic covering will crack and split from being exposed to the weather. That type of plastic also dry rots causing it to flake off. I use my old and left over yarn to tie all my plants.
If you notice in the photo there is a cord that is white/gray that particular 1 has been in the backyard in Southern California for at least the last 6 years exposed to all the elements no cracking no splitting they're not falling apart at all and I figure I would probably lose them before they began disintegrating + when I used yarn, pantyhose, stringed the large twist ties off of vegetables I would have to make sure I had a pair of scissors with me during cleanup time to cut everything free, this way I just untwist them.
What a great idea! I've been using strips of fabric from discarded clothing to tie up veggie plants, but your strategy seems to make a lot of sense! I like the idea of not having all that fabric hanging all over the place! I can't wait to try your idea!
