Since the introduction of the EPA’s Reduce, Reuse, Recycle campaign, many have adopted recyclable systems. People are remembering to bring reusable bags in their weekly shops, countries are adopting plastic bag bans, and are becoming aware of their own ecological footprint.

So, to help you out here are 6 home items you can save and instill with new life and purpose many times over:

1. Glass Jars, Containers or Cans

Glass and metal are easily recycled, but why not cut down on excess packaging and waste by reusing them? Glass jars and old coffee canisters make great containers for bulk pantry items, desk organizers or bathroom containers. 

2. Gallon Jugs, Plastic Bottles and Other Plastic Containers

There are so many ways to reuse plastic bottles and containers; bird feeders out of old plastic bottles, self watering seed pots or a cell charging station out of a shampoo bottle? 

3. Clothes, Towels, and Bedding

Don’t throw out old towels, clothes and bedding! Cut them up into cleaning rags! 

4. Newspapers, Paper Bags & Magazines

Recycling newspapers, grocery bags and magazines as wrapping paper is a great way to save all the waste from wrapping paper over Christmas. Why not go the extra step and make DIY envelopes! 

5. Old Furniture

Upcycling is definitely a craze at the moment and we’re into it! A huge amount of our furniture at the Beach is upcycled and it’s a great way to reduce landfill waste. 

Pinterest is deadly for finding new ways to upcycle your old furniture. Check out this board to find creative ways to reuse old household items. 

6. Bathroom Items

Save those old toothbrushes to scrub hard to reach places!
