In honor of Earth Day, I would like to share one of the ways that I accomplish the triple R.
Behold, the plastic cases where my bareMinerals makeup once resided.
I saved the little containers and washed them with dish soap and warm water.
Now here they are again... only now they are being reused!
In fact, you will find two other items that were also given renewed life. As a scrapbooker and crafter, these former makeup, candy, and office supply containment devices are very handy for holding my tiny embellishments. Leftover project glitter will be placed in the cases with a "sifter" to be reused at a later date. I can label the cases or leave them as is. Not a crafter? These would also come in in handy to store a few pairs of earrings, trinkets, safety pins, or loose change. They also fit conveniently in your purse. What a simple way to recycle! What other things could you use these items for?
What ways have you been know to Renew, Reuse, or Recycle? What ways do you preserve the world we live in? How have you "gone green?" Do you think we need improvement, are doing well, or are in need of major help when it comes to preserving our planet today? Happy Belated Earth Day!
