How can I reuse or recycle … sandwich packaging?

Sandwich packagingA suggestion from Heather:

I’m so bad. Every day, I buy those prepacked sandwiches rather than making my own. Sometimes I go to Pret and buy cardboard and cellophane wrapped ones, and sometimes I go to the yummy bakery up the road and get them just wrapped in cellophone but most of the time, sigh, I have to get those standard pre-packaged sandwiches in the triangular plastic wastefulness. I do feel bad while I eat them and not just because the sandwiches are bland and tasteless yet just cost me £2. What can I do with the packaging when I’m done with it?

    Guess what? I’ve got another gardening suggestion! You can squish down the point of the plastic ones to make wide and low plant pots that taper out. They’ll probably be quite sterdy when you put some soil in them. And if you have two, you could use the second one on top of the first one to make a mini-greenhouse for seedlings.

    organise and store screws and nails and stuff by pinning them next to each other along the wall in your garage or cellar

    you could make your own sandwiches and put them in the boxes thus saving money and re using the box
