Save the Planet Sunday

I am trying hard to reuse, recycle or upcycle before I throw stuff away in the tip. The idea of getting more than one use of something is appealing and it is a small but hopefully important contribution in saving the planet. So I thought I would start a Save the Planet Sunday challenge to include a post about something you did that contributed to the world being a little 'greener', however small.

Here's my little contribution for this week.

I bought some tomatoes for my weekly grocery shop.

See this net that it comes covered in. I cut it out.

Bunched it up with a rubber band

And its going to work as my non-stick pan scourer before it goes in the bin.

If you check, your non-stick pan scourers are made of similar material - in fact this is softer!!! And since a lot of fruit and veg and cased in this netting, you never need to buy another non-stick pan scourer!!

  1. what is a non-stick pan scourer ??

  2. I'm always looking at ways to give something a second life. Neat idea. Thanks for dropping by my blog today. I'll be back to look at some more of your ideas.

  3. Great idea - I've also seen people use glimmer mist and change the color and use this as embellishments...thanks for linking up - I hope you come back again this weekend!


I love hearing what you have to say! Please take a minute and leave a comment!
