Repurpose containers and packaging

Why It Matters

Tons of stuff we get with other products — from glass jars to silica packets — can have a second life around the house.

Benefits for You

It'll almost always be cheaper and easier to reuse your old stuff than to go out and buy new things you don't need.

Recommendations for how to take action

  • How To Start

    Clean out your old glass jars and repurpose them into other things, like new food containers, planters, or even homemade candles.

  • What Comes Next

    Experiment with new uses for goods destined for the trash, like silica gel packets. These are great for absorbing moisture and freshening up smelly shoes.
