It’s no surprise that we’re always looking for more ways to be environmentally conscious; as part of our commitment to sustainability and environmentalism, we have always pushed for more ecologically sound packaging and practices. Tin cans can be recycled easily through the blue box programs in most municipal areas, but what if there was a way to do more with your tin cans even before you get a chance to put them out at the curb?

It’s simple! Let’s take a look at 3 ways to upcycle that tin-can into something fun and new.

Organizing in Style

The short profile of Gold Seal cans is perfect for drawer organization, letting you keep each space organized. Keeping smaller items sorted can be a challenge; junk drawers typically aren’t full of junk, they’re just hard to keep clean. By setting up a number of cans in a formation you’ll get a smart grid of easy organization in a space that can really use it.

Feed the Birds

You could go out and spend a lot of money on a new birdfeeder, but why do that when you can upcycle in style? Fishing line, some hot glue, and some decorations can take your ready-to-recycle Gold Seal Can and turn it into something helpful for our feathered friends!

Holiday Ornaments

This great idea has so many possibilities. Using simple wooden shapes and some basic materials you can create a nativity scene, a holiday diorama, or even a tiny Christmas tree. Find some colours you love, grab some scraps of fabric and materials, and heat up your glue gun: these are projects that are fun and easy to create.

If you’ve already maxed out on your up-cycled cans don’t forget to recycle the rest. The kinder we can be to our environment, the better for all of us.
