How can I reuse or recycle little tin cans?
We’ve covered the standard food size ones, but what can be done with little tin cans?
John gave a talk at the Manchester Free Software group last month and afterwards we all adjourned to a nearby pub where we found these little nuts cans on our table.
As I’d just been talking about this website to a couple of people, we decided to do a group-think on how we could re-use them but the best we could come up with was a mobile equivalent of a tin-can ‘telephone’ (because they’re more portable).
With a couple of holes punched in the bottom, they’d make cute little plant pots – but only for very little plants – so any other suggestions?
(The cans are about 4cm in diameter and 5cm in height, quite a solid metal and I think they originally had a paper lid so the rim at the top is quite dull, unlike most opened cans.)
