9 Earth Day Recycling Tips & Ideas

Here are 9 tips to help you use that stuff you might otherwise throw away in your home, some ideas that are just a good way to recycle, and some ideas that are pretty crafty and cool!




1. Wine Corks – Make a Corkboard

Fun to do, great for yourself or to gift, and also just one more reason to have your wine ūüôā


DIY Instructions: SuzeGeeksOut

2. Keep Grocery Store Plastic Bags 

Instead of throwing away all of those grocery store plastic bags, keep them and use them through your house/apartment in small trash cans like in bathrooms, the patio, garage, etc. 



3. Repurpose Empty Glass Jars (Mason Jars, Glass Bottles, etc)

Use empty glass jars or bottles as food containers – for example mason jars, detox juice bottles, you can use to package homemade Almond Butter (recipe here), dates, almonds, peanuts, pistaccios, and the list goes on! This is also a good health trick to keep healthy foods in these jars and out on your counter. It looks good and organized, and you’re only tempting yourself with healthy snacks.
