Reuse Styrofoam

Styrofoam peanuts are great filler for re-potting plants. Use Styrofoam meat trays to trace out your switch plate and use as insulation. Use cookie cutters to make weather resistant decorations.


Styrofoam! I re-use all I can. When drying starched items (ie: ornaments), I cover a strip of Styrofoam with plastic wrap, stretch to form and pin to place.

Use Styrofoam anywhere you can and it won't reach our landfills. It's not to late to do something to recycle, all we can. Things I can't use, I trade with my friends.

I've found the styrofoam trays to be very useful. I wash out the deeper ones and keep them handy for putting vegie peels in for my compost bin. They're also good for organizing craft supplies. I save and use all sizes for paint trays. Since they can't be recycled where I live, at least they're getting used before being thrown out.
