Reuse Milk Jugs for Plastic Replacement Parts
My husband came up with a "bright" idea. We have electric garden lights in our backyard. The plastic shades shattered over time from the sun. The lights and posts are fine so he placed a plastic milk carton over the tops by measuring the length of the post and then cutting the milk carton the appropriate height. Then he placed the carton over the light fixture. Looks great and much better than the original.

Sounds like a great way to recycle something you already have. Since it came with milk you drank, the jug itself was essentially free, too. Free is always good!
