Free Recycled Plastic Pots

I recently discovered that the labels on Chobani Greek Yogurt cups are not printed directly on the cups, but on a skin-tight plastic sleeve that covers the cup. This sleeve is easily slit and removed, leaving a clean white cup. After using a torch-heated nail to make drainage holes, I find these cups to be just the right size for smaller streps and AVs, and for rooting strep leaves, and they look good, too.

Thanks! I too eat these and will have to try this out :)

RE: Free Recycled Plastic Pots

I'm one of the few apparently who can't stomach the Greek yogurt. I couldn't eat it, not even for free pots, LOL. But I know that my sister buys it all the time so thanks for the tip! I will ask her to save the empty containers for me. I wouldn't have known to do so except for your post - thanks! :-)

RE: Free Recycled Plastic Pots

It's amazing how many plastic items can be recycled. Coffee can lids, yogurt lids and cottage cheese lids all make good saucers. I reuse the styrofoam boxes that mushrooms come in for seeds. It is so easy to punch holes in the bottom of them.
