Repurpose Your Plastic: Milk-Jug Craft Projects
In the immortal words of Mr. McGuire from The Graduate: "I just want to say one word to you. Just one word. . . . Are you listening? . . . Plastics." This week, we'll provide tips on how to reuse and recycle everyday plastic items.
Tip #1: Reuse Your Old Milk Containers
The gallon milk jug may be the mother of all bulky plastics, but there are many ways to reuse the empty container before you toss it into the recycling bin. With just a pair of scissors and a marker, you can turn a gallon milk jug into a stylish quasi-lunch box, purse, or gift box. If your lunch-box needs are already satisfied, don't fret: the repurposing possibilities are endless.
Tip #3: Recycle CDs Creatively
