In honour of Earth Day, we’re exploring how our sustainable packaging can be reused for different purposes.

By reusing packaging, we can prevent or delay materials becoming waste, reducing our environmental footprint.

The initial delivery is just the beginning!

Metal Packaging: Sustainable Brilliance

Metal packaging including tin or aluminium containers are used to package sweets, herbs, spices, dry food and candles. Here are some innovative ways your customers can reused

Metal packaging, often found in the form of cans, lids, and containers, can be given a new lease on life through creative reuse.

Here are some innovative ways to repurpose metal packaging.

Green Herb Planters and Mini Gardens

Once empty, our metal tins make excellent herb planters. Drill a few holes in the bottom for drainage, fill them with soil, and plant any favourite herbs. They can place them on their windowsill or balcony for fresh, homegrown flavours. This is another popular choice as more people move towards living off their own land and providing for themselves.

Or customers can leave our beautiful tins intact, fill them with soil and plant gorgeous flowers.

Stylish Bathroom Accessories

Help your customers keep their bathroom environments clean and tidy with brilliant choices for storing everything from cotton buds to toothbrushes. Our corrosion resistant aluminium tins will remain stunning, even if they get wet.

On Trend Jewellery Boxes

Contemporary, minimal and effortlessly stylish, our square, rectangular and circular tins are the perfect make-shift jewellery box. Whether they love gold or adore silver, these tins have a beauty that will match any necklace, diamond ring, or bracelet in their collection.

Cardboard Tubes: Trash to Treasure

Cardboard tubes, often used for packaging cosmetics, herbs, spices, sweets and dry food. Here’s some creative uses once the tube is empty.

Desk Organisers

Cardboard tubes are the perfect storage solution for keeping pens and pencils in order to keep desk space clear. A clean desk is key to high levels of productivity.

You can even cut cardboard tubes into short segments to ensure that they are the perfect size for your needs. Our cardboard tubes have a rustic style that fit wonderfully with the artistic or creative mindset.

Cord Holders

Tangled, jumbled cords are a true nuisance for the tech obsessed. Cardboard tubes provide a miracle, make-shift solution. Roll them up neatly and slide them into cardboard tubes. Your customers can even label each tube to easily identify which cord belongs to which device.

Seed Starters

Back garden living, you can cut larger cardboard tubes into sections, fill them with soil, and plant seeds. Once the seedlings are ready, transplant them directly into the garden. The cardboard will naturally decompose!

Gift Wrapping

We’re bringing sustainability to seasonal gifts. Slide small presents or trinkets into cardboard tubes, wrap them in colourful paper, and tie the ends with ribbon. It’s an eco-friendly alternative to traditional gift boxes.

Kids’ Crafts

Finally, cardboard tubes are perfect for children’s art projects. Transform them into binoculars, telescopes, or even mini rockets. Your customers will love having materials like this readily available for family arts and crafts.

Remember, reusing packaging materials not only reduces waste, it sparks imagination. Give the gift of sustainability and creativity to your customers today by investing in sustainable packaging.
