Repurposing items makes everyone feel like they’re doing their part. Even if the item can be recycled, it can feel even more satisfying to make it into something useful yourself. This project from Family Fun shows you how to turn a milk jug into one of two different items: a sandwich holder or a take out container.

There are two different options here too, one for plastic milk bottles and one for cardboard milk jugs. The plastic is sturdy enough to hold up to a little squishing in a lunch sack or backpack and will help keep small snacks together without the use of a plastic bag, and the cardboard box makes a sturdy container too.

Plus, what snack doesn’t look adorable in a little take out container? You’ll be the envious hit of the office!
