Best Recyclable and Reusable Packaging For the Home

Pin it button big

Look around your house. There's likely a few products which could see another light of day being recycled into reuse. We're always refilling our Method Foaming Soap dispenser with watered down Ivory hand soap we purchase in bulk (about 2 parts water to one part soap). Or reusing maple syrup bottles for our shampoo and conditioners. There's plenty of other products than can be reused, especially for storage uses...

POM glasses can both be used as candle holders, drink glasses, and spare coin jars. We like to keep pins and X-acto blades inside Republic of Tea tins, and Spega yogurt jars for our sewing supplies. Trader Joe's pink lemonade bottles are always refilled with filtered water and mixed drinks, while Target brand crystal kitty litter packaging is cleaned out and reused as dry cat food dispenser.

We try to mostly stick with items easily washable and with as little branding on it as possible, because who wants a home filled with items with logos all over it? How about you? Any packaging favourites you like to keep and reuse?
