Don’t waste your waste

June 21st, 2011 - 

You can reuse almost everything you have at home: newspapers and magazines, cans, bottles and jars, milk and juice cartons. Newspapers can be used as wrapping paper for gifts. It will be funny to make boxes or small packagings out of old comic books. Newspapers can be used, as my grandma is all the time using, as a cheap window and mirror cleaner or as a protecting surface when renovating your house. There is no need to buy special plastic bags or special coverings for your floor when doing this.
Milk and juice cartons: due to the fact that paper and carton are biodegradable, you can make holes in the tetrapaks and use them as pots for flowers and seeds and plant them directly in your garden. In time, they will dissapear.They are
very good for portecting plants against pests. What else can you do with these packs? You can either collect them and give them to a kindergarden- because they need these for craft projects or you can keep some of them to create nice toys and decorative objects at home, for your beloved ones. 

Cans: they can be used as pencil holders or paint tins. If you like to play a little bit, you can create nice decorative lighting designs for your home.
