How can I reuse or recycle berry baskets?
We’ve had an email from Rebecca asking:
What can i do with green plastic berry baskets? In the US strawberries and cherry tomatoes come in these baskets; they are number 5 plastic, and I have amassed more than I have little items to hold.
Number 5 plastic isn’t usually included in the standard recycling repertoire in most places so I guess we’re looking for reuses.
Like Annie’s feta cheese basket last year, these baskets probably won’t be strong enough to hold particularly heavy things – but any suggestions?
Particularly any suggestions that will take advantage of the mostly open structure?
