Empty Stonyfield yogurt containers usually end up in the recycle bin over here. And there are plenty of them!
Many of you know that I’ve been working closely with Stonyfield as a Stonyfield Yo-Getter and have had the privilege of trying out Stonyfield products and reporting back to you. Thus, there are empty yogurt containers everywhere.
Have you heard of the three R’s? Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. I’ve been giving a lot of thought lately to recycling and reusing. Before I throw things in the recycle bins in my garage and before I chuck something in the garbage I’m trying really hard to pause and consider whether it has life left in it.
Quite simply, reusing an item lengthens its life span. What if before those empty yogurt containers landed in the recycle bin we gave them one more job?
While all three of my kids are at sleepaway camp our house is going through a major overhaul. We are purging. Sounds like fun, doesn’t it?!
New Uses for Yogurt Containers
Over the years we’ve accumulated a lot of art supplies. The latest art projects over here have everything to do with gimp or lanyard. We’ve made key chains, necklaces and more. There are spools and strings of lanyard everywhere.
Thanks to an empty Stonyfield yogurt container the strings of lanyard now have a new home. The spools didn’t quite fit.
All the magic markers that have filled drawers and floors also have a new home.
And the sidewalk chalk fit perfectly.
There are so many more uses for these containers.
Next up…..we’re taking them to the beach for sand castles!
Can you think of any other great uses for yogurt containers?
