How can I reuse or recycle muffin packaging?

A blueberry muffin in a plastic boxOh, I hate trying to photograph transparent things but oh how I love muffins. Sweet, sweet muffins with your sugar and your chocolate and your ability to crumble all over my clean white t-shirts (thanks muffin, thaaaaanks).

How I love the way you’re there for me in the morning when I want a snack and how well you coordinate with both tea and orange juice (although not both beverages at the same time, bleugh).

But how I hate your packaging: its formed plastic and its inability to photograph well. Boo! Boo!

If only there were some other uses for your packaging so I could enjoy your goodness without feeling green guilty at the same time…

    Soil in the bottom bit, take the label off and jab some holes in the top for air and you’ve got a portable mini greenhouse for incubating seedlings!

    Use the bottoms in the fridge as handy little containers for small items like say Baby Bel cheeses? or small amounts of leftovers..then you can use the tops as well!

    I’ve made them into temporary homes for ladybirds my girls catch. They can look at their catch from all angles and it’s easy for them to open and close. We just add some leaves and flowers and it’s ready.
