Since the pandemic began, many people are turning to takeout food rather than sitting and eating in the restaurant, which is actually quite a sensible thing to do. But takeout food means a lot of takeout containers, you probably have a lot of plastic spoons, forks and containers at your home by now, so here is what you can do with them.
Recycling is the best thing to do. Look for the recycle sign on the back or bottom of the container, and if it has the sign then it is recyclable. You can even use these containers at your home, most of them are microwave safe, so you can easily use these containers again after washing them.
Best out waste:
Takeout containers which are big in size can be used as flower pots. All you have to do is poke some holes in the bottom of the container and you are good to go. If you like doing crafts, you like look online for some best out of waste craft ideas. This is a great thing to do if you have kids, this could be your new weekend activity.
Small objects like jewelry, beads, etc easily get lost in your drawer or cupboard. You can use the small takeout containers to organize these things. Storing your socks, undergarments and other small clothing are also a great example to use the takeout containers.
If you still feel you have a lot of containers and you don’t want anymore, you can always take your own containers and tell the restaurant to put your food in them.
