Reuse your Yogurt

Yoghurt pots are notoriously difficult to recycle. Yoghurt pots are made from polystyrene, which is a plastic that is not typically recycled. Since you can’t recycle yoghurt pots, here are some suggestions on how you can reuse them.

As with all plastic containers, where possible keep them for storage.

You can also use them for filling with fruit squash or juice before freezing to make ice lollies!
Schools & playgroups may use them as craft materials

They can be used in the garden as pots for seedlings or cane covers.

They can be cut into strips and used as plant labellers. You just need a permanent marker to write on them.

Puncture the bottom of 2 pots, thread a string between them, and then children can use them as a cheap telephone!

These are some Great and Creative Ideas!
Now it's your turn, do you have any Eco-Friendly Tips?

Okay, I learned something new today. I have always thought yogurt cups were recyclable. I will definitely save them now to use as ice pop holders, the kids will love them.
