Hello myLot friends :) Do you like chips? I do! Especially pringles :) Everytime I will buy pringles, I always save the can. Why? Because I make something out of it. I recycle it. I recycle the pringles can into pencil cases. As you can see in the picture. I covered it with colored paper. Add some simple drawings and viola! Pencil cases. I made one for our dices too. Its really easy. How about you? Have you recycled something into something useful?

Oh I love to recycle. It is a good way to reuse our resources and be able to save other resources for the children or people of the next generation. Glad to know that you are very creative as you recycle. Continue sharing and be a blessing.

Oh, it seems really pretty! Such a creative DIY! I don't do much recycling, but I always save my candle glass jars for other purposes... mostly I keep make-up in them (eyeliners, lipliners, sleek lipsticks, brushes, that kind of stuff :D), or I put the shells and stones collected at different places in them for decoration.

I love recycling whenever there is an opportunity. I remember there was a time when I actually reused wooden ice cream sticks as rulers! I also still recycle plastic drinking straws to make craft products. These straws can be made into beautiful plastic flowers or can be made into stars. Recycling is good because it not only saves money but also saves the environment from unnecessary wastage and pollution.

I enjoy recycling things. There are already so many things that get thrown away. Recycling not only gives new life to an object. It also helps to preserve the earth for the next generation to come.

Hi Blue ! Recycling is so good for this can help save our Mother Earth . I think everyone should do their share in saving our Earth. Everyone should go recycling so waste would be less. I am recycling our boxes here. I made them like utility box where you can place some extra clothes that can no longer be accommodated in the closet. I wrap the box with a beautiful ,colorful magazine and the output is just amazing , the box looks like from the department store . More recycling i have planned just got no time for now , someday i can !

We get cans and boxes when we buy certain things and they can be useful - especially for pens and other small things, just like you have done. I have done this too a long time ago. We have now a place where we can put cans and other things for recycling, on the place where I live, if we don't recycle everything. I used to love chips but when I learned what that heated fat is doing to us, i avoid them nowadays. But there are other cans that can be useful..

Whenever we bought something that comes with neat packagings or boxes, I hate to waste it by throwing them in the trash. I usually glue some small decorations on it, or wrap it in some neat paper wrappers and use it to hold some odds and ends on our coffee table. Sometimes I will use it as pencil holders, or even make it as another gift box whenever we need to give someone something.

Yes, i like to recycle some items so that i can do my part in saving our environment, if everyone just do a small part of recycle a day, we will not have to destroy our environment so quickly, and making living on this earth a bit more bearable., our landfill will take a bit longer to fill up, more land will be available for other purposes.

I am trying not to get crisps to see if I can lose weight. I do like the taste of ready salted crisps as long as they are suitable for vegans. I like the idea of making the Pringles can into something useful like a pencil case. With my recycling I wash it out and place in my recycling boxes. Men from my local council collect recycling once every week. Yes, I do like recycling because it is excellent for the environment.
