Maybe CDs are a bit "old hat" now, but many of us still use them and I am sure most of us would find an old CD container stashed away somewhere in the nether regions of a store cupboard.

Did you know they are just the right size for a bagel or a stack of bagels if you have a big tall one? Brilliant for keeping your lunchtime bagel air tight and un-squashable until it is time to eat.

Take it to work with you and you can guarantee that your colleagues will either say "whoa! what a brilliant idea" or they will look at you as if you are completely barking mad. Either way I think this is an eccentrically brilliant idea. Have a go!

My husband took the empty domed package that originally had 30 cds in it and recycled it into a bagel sandwich holder. The hole in the bagel lines up perfectly with the post in the case.


It kept his bagel/tuna salad sandwich perfect for lunch.

This is a great recycling craft that is easy enough for kids to do with parent supervision. This is an earth friendly craft as we need to recycle, reuse as much as we can to keep plastic out of the land fills.

Use the empty plastic spools from your blank recordable CD stacks to serve as an upright paper towel holder or a holder for extra toilet paper. Turn over the plastic top and use to to hold pens, markers, pencils and so on. There! You have recycled something totally.
