How often do you toss things in the trash or put them in recycling, knowing that you probably could have reused them?

Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with recycling! We should always recycle what we can and encourage others to recycle, as well.

But you can also recycle in ways that don’t just include dropping something into a specified blue bin! There is almost no limit to what you can recycle, or upcycle.

If you have old T-shirts just taking up space in your dresser, you can get a jumpstart on your gardening technique and reuse them outside!

Along with T-shirts, you probably find yourself going through a ton of milk and water jugs.

If your family is like mine, you can finish a jug of milk in less than two days! But instead of just tossing that jug out, why not craft it into something new?

Natalie Pirveysian, the founder of DIY blog Crème de la Craft, has a unique use for that old milk jug that is not only functional, but looks pretty cute, too.

It’s simple enough! You just take an old milk jug, cut off the handle and the top, and fold to your desire! You can watch the video below to see just how Pirveysian creates this milk jug lunch box!

If you have no need for a lunch box, then don’t worry, you can still use this! Pirveysian happens to use this DIY milk jug box to store craft supplies. But it would also be great for storing your child’s crayons and markers!

Don’t forget to SHARE this hack with all of your friends and family who probably have these milk jugs just laying around!
