I have reduced the use of plastic as much as I can and hate to throw the few which come in my way. No, I can't let them ruin Mother Earth. Wish we could get rid of these completely or find a way to decompose them. Out of the world, plastic!!! Well, coming back to the post, I had bought yogurt and it came in a plastic container. Savoured the yogurt and recycled the container, along with some old magazine. Double bonus that it had glossy papers. Here is what I did.
I cut out the rim of the container just to make sure I can stick my paper rolls vertically.
Then I measured the height of the container and cut strips from the magazines. Rolled each tightly around a pencil and glued those up into nice cylindrical pipes.
Glue them onto the container and Voila!! You have a nice conatainer which can serve as a pen stand, a vase or ...left to your discretion. :)
