A typical family consumes 26 gallons of bottled water, 182 gallons of canned drinks, 104 gallons of milk a year!
We can recycle these items (as we should), but if we think about it we could also make things out of them.
Before you throw away just think!
Have a look here at these people that have put these containers to good creative use.
I also am a HUGE fan of Elbow Grease Designs (two images above). Everything on her site has been designed and; hand sewn in the San Francisco Bay Area from discarded vinyl signs and banners. Originally printed for local trade shows, conventions, municipal or private advertising, these ENORMOUS banners would otherwise end up in the landfill. Jenny Say's "It is our goal to make beautiful and practical items out of what has been discarded".

Harriete Estel Berman Makes wonderful teacups, pots, jewellery, sculptues all out used food packaging. The cups above were constructed from recycled tin cans.
I love the look of this Fishing tackle by Tedd McDonanah. I actually think they would also make great keyrings!
I even love the above artwork created by Children out of food packaging.
