Transforming trash into treasure is an incredibly fulfilling and environmentally conscious practice. By recycling and upcycling your empty containers, you can help reduce waste and give new life to items that would otherwise end up in a landfill.

Follow this step-by-step guide to learn how to creatively reuse your Seek Space empties!

Clean and dry the container

Start by rinsing it thoroughly with warm water and soap to remove any residual product, and then allow it to air dry completely.

Check for any recycling symbols

Know your recycling symbols! As a general rule, most glass and plastic containers can be recycled, but it's important to double-check for specific instructions. By being mindful of what can and cannot be recycled, you can do your part to reduce waste and conserve resources.

Remove any labels

If there are labels or stickers on the container, remove them carefully. You can use a bit of rubbing alcohol or cooking oil to help loosen the adhesive.

Take it to a recycling center

Once your container is clean and label-free, you can take it to a recycling center to be recycled. Check with your local recycling program to see if they accept glass and plastic containers and what the requirements are.

Some initiatives you can contact:

  1. Green Antz
  2. The Plastic Flamingo

Repurpose the container

To ensure that your containers are safe and hygienic for reuse, it's crucial to sterilize them after emptying their contents. Afterwards, you can repurpose them into:

  • Vases
  • Storage jars
  • Candle holders
  • Planters
  • Travel containers
  • Desk organizers

Encourage your community to do the same!
