REUSE

One of the reasons plastic is so popular is that it can be used in so many different ways and for a long time – that’s also the reason why it’s so easy to reuse (giving new life to your old plastics is also a great way to save it from ending up in a garbage dump!). If you’re looking for fun, practical ways to reuse and repurpose your plastics, try these out:

  1. Reuse plastic containers for storing left over meals– make sure to check for the Food Grade Plastic symbol before you do
  2. Why not convert your plastic containers into flower pots/planters/bird feeders/pen or pencil holders
  3. Have a pillow that’s low on stuffing? Plastic shopping bags make great stuffing for thick cushions
  1. Using a plastic bag as an emergency glove not only doubles as an easy way to deal with a gooey mess but avoids you having to use plastic gloves
  2. Plastic containers can be used for many creative craft projects – you just need some paint and imagination
