Who doesn’t love ordering takeout and eating in the comfort of one’s own home? But have you ever wondered what happens to plastic takeout containers after you are done with them? Most of them make their way to the dumps or landfills and stay there, polluting the environment for millennia.
If you wish to do your part for the environment while enjoying your takeout, you can recycle, reuse, or repurpose those containers. This way, you can eat your delicious meals without any guilt, as they don’t end up in landfills. Here are a few creative ways to reuse your plastic takeaway food packaging containers.
- Organise That Messy Drawer:
- Store Memorabilia:
- Seed-starting trays:
Get rid of the mess that falls out of the cupboard each time you open it. Everyone has a messy drawer or cupboard in their house where they have stocked up on all the unwanted items lying around here and there. Your food packaging containers can help you organise and compartmentalise all your belongings.
Do you remember where you placed those ticket stubs or the dried flowers from your first date? More often than not, these items that you cherish so much get misplaced or thrown out by mistake by another person.
If you wish to hold on to your memorabilia, why not put your takeout containers to use? By labelling the lid, you can safely store all kinds of items that will make for some quality reminiscing in the future.
Another amazing use for plastic food packaging containers is that you can create your own mini garden or use them as seed starting trays. Punch a few holes in the bottom part, create a small layer of soil, plant the seeds, place the lid back on top, and you are ready.
The container creates a miniature greenhouse atmosphere for the seedlings to grow before we can replant them into individual pots or your backyard garden. With the help of these plastic food containers, you can also make a vertical garden of planters.
At Piber Plastics, we understand how important it is to look after the environment. All our plastic containers are 100% recyclable. As one of the leading providers of custom moulding solutions, we try to ensure that our containers are reused, repurposed, or recycled as much as possible.
