Recycling Plastic Milk Cartons into Food ScoopsDecember's mini-challenge in the Frugal Forums is to recycle as much as possible, as creatively as possible, so I'm starting with my milk cartons. At £1.62 for a 2 litre carton, it seems crazy to throw these in the bin.
|2 litre milk cartons make great food scoops|
|Draw the shape first, keep the handle to the top|
|Carefully cut along the line to form your scoop|
|Keep the extra piece|
The unused part of the milk containers, after cutting out your scoops, can be kept for future projects requiring firm plastic or they can be joined together for using as desk tidies, fridge containers or any number of objects - I'll post a few more soon.
|Reuse the sticky labels for resealing bags|
|Handy funnel for filling jars with rice etc.|
Spare plastic lids can come in really handy for all sorts of exciting projects, plus used as pieces in home made board games. There are so many different uses for plastic milk cartons that I have just created a new section in the Frugal Forums specifically for sharing ideas about recycling plastic milk cartons. See you there soon.
