How do we save the environment? Reduce, reuse, recycle!
As for the “reuse” part, Family Handyman has lots of ideas to, “Cut down on your trash and salvage some of these items.”
You can make a sidewalk salt shaker from a coffee can or keep your holiday lights on old hose reels! Paper tubes are awesome to store cords and toothbrushes are great for cleaning!
Socks can work to clean blinds, old jars can store your DIY materials like screws and nails, and laundry jugs make fantastic watering cans!
