Milk Jug Turned into a Sandwich Container

Milk Jug Turned into a Sandwich Container

 My son is constantly looking for ways to make things from recycling items into something new. He mainly wants the boxes to turn into race tracks, homes for this animals or stations for his train.  Not sure about you...but I can only have so many boxes in my basement. I head out after they are in bed to recycle all those re-recycled items. LOL

When I saw this idea for making a sandwich or take out container made of a milk jug I was thrilled. Not only is this a great way to free up space in the recycling bin but I can do this little project with my son. I feel great pride that we recycle as much as we do, but when you re-purpose items it makes you feel even better.

So instead of spending more money on reusable sandwich containers you can now just reuse what you already have in your recycle bin. If you are looking for more ways to use an old milk jugs click here.

Great idea!
P.S. I sneak into my son's room to recycle his boxes too. I once took 12 boxes out while he slept.
