Project Sunlight Re-Think Recycling: Upcycled Shampoo Bottle Caddies #UnileverSavesMore

One of my favorite things to do is to bring new life to old products. I have always had this passion since a kid, and am more passionate now then ever when it comes to recycling, and upcycling. When it comes to thinks like old boxes, cans, and items like shampoo bottles, I can always envision a new use.
Just one look around my office, and you can spy old cans filled with pens and pencils, lid containers filled with beads, and more. Most recently, we turned two Suave Shampoo bottles into caddies to hold my pocket change, sunglasses, keys, phone, and other nonsense I carry with me. I am notorious for placing my phone all over the house so it was time to have “that designated” area that I could responsibly place it.
The Suave Infusions bottles were the perfect size, and shape for hanging caddies so that is exactly what I turned them into. With the help of a dry erase marker, an xacto knife, and a good eye, I carefully cut out the shapes I wanted.
I left a little depth in them to hold whatever change was in the pockets. I don’t like carrying a purse to run out so my pockets often have money, change, lip care, and moist wipes “just because”.
After I cut out the Suave Shampoo bottles, I used glitter polish to give them an “Amy” touch.
I love sparkles so this worked perfectly and the glitter will not comes off onto my hands like conventional glitter would have.
Speaking of upcycling, did you know that Albertsons –Safeway family of stores are celebrating Project Sunlight? This initiative wants people to think outside of the box, and give new life to their plastic bathroom products marked 1 & 2 and maybe even 5 in some areas. By rinsing out your plastic shampoo, and body wash bottles you can give them new life by either recycling them, or upcycling as I did with my bottles.
To get you started on your Project Sunlight journey, the folks at Albertsons-Safeway want to give you the perfect excuse to stock up on Unilever Shampoo and body care products. For a limited time, shoppers can Save $5 when you spend $15 on participating Unilever brands 7/24/15-8/28/15.
Sounds amazing right? I know I need more Suave, and some Dove!
