Day 16: Reused Cardboard Packaging as Storage
Instead of throwing away the cardboard packaging for some item that I bought, I cut off the top and am using it to store items.
ButterBudgeting has 15 Creative Ways to Reuse Small Boxes. Here are some of them:
- By cutting off the top and part of the side of the box, you can use it as a magazine holder.
- Empty boxes are great for arts and crafts collages.
- Open an empty cereal box and let your young child have fun coloring on the inside.
According to RethinkRecycling: Nearly 30% of our trash is packaging. A lot of it is cardboard that can be reused or recycled.
It would be great if we could totally eliminate the trash, but reusing works as well.
