Awesome Ways Saving Your Plastic Can Save You Money!


Naturally, you would not think of reusing your plastic, although most of the bottled waters you drink regularly are made of reused plastic. What I am trying to say is that instead of just throwing your plastic away, you can donate it; or use it for a good purpose in your home.

Pantry Canisters


Label (either printed off or store bought)

Spray paint of your choice

You have been online, and I am sure you have seen those pretty and decorated canisters in the photos floating around. I have seen them, too. They have basically the same things at stores around town and their is just one difference- one is glass. All you need to make them are the following items:

  • Empty peanut/almond can
  • Label (either printed off or store bought)
  • Spray paint of your choice

They are made from empty peanut/almond containers. How did they do that? Easy, Just take off the ugly label, put yours on (buy them from Walmart or print offline), and spray paint the lid to match the label! So, instead of throwing the container away, reuse it to save you money.

Teacher’s Gifts

Back-To-School is a big thing, and most students like to take their teacher a nice gift- just to get on their good side. Re-using your plastic bottles to make open-able apples to stuff with candy is a perfect way to send your student’s teacher over the edge. Supplies needed are:

  • Brown and green construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • An attatchable zipper (big enough to cover your bottles)
  • Hot glue gun
  • Spray paint (apple colored)
  • 2 plastic bottles
  • Candy

All you do is cut evenly across your plastic bottles and spray paint them the color you want your apple to be. Then just hot glue your zipper around your “apple” and stuff your candy. To make your “apple” look more like an apple, take your scissors and construction paper, cut out leaves and a stem, and hot glue them to your apple. This would especially make a perfect surprise gift to your student’s science teacher during the teaching of “Reduce, Reuse and Recycle”.

Overall, their are millions of small projects that you can do, whether it is for around your home, or a gift to your friends or teachers. Try one of these, find a new one, or just make yourself one! Good luck to you!

Enough fun, it is now time to talk about the PP Foam and the PU Foam. When you are talking about Polypropylene(PP Foam), it is used during packaging and labeling, textiles, stationery, reusable containers, laboratory equipment, loudspeakers, automotive components. This PP Foam is rugged and not usually resistant to many chemical solvents, bases and acids. When you are talking about Polyurethane (PU Foam), it is usually found in domestic and commercial furniture, refrigerators, freezers, door frames, columns, balusters, window headers and rosettes.
