Recycle! I emptied a grated cheese container and took the label off it. Hum, what to do with this? I was in the process of making my iced coffee to take with me on my daily walk. I scrubbed it clean, made my iced coffee, poured it in the container, screwed on the top, put my straw in one of the holes, and we were off to take a walk. If I wanted to close it, I just pushed the straw in and closed the lid. These lids snap on very tight. It worked well for a walking beverage container!
