Bring a little nature into your home by reusing your eco-refill sachet!
Who knew you could take something plastic and use it to make something rustic?
This is one of our easiest upcycling ideas. Take an empty eco-refill, wash it, fill it two thirds with water, put the cap on and place it in your freezer. You can then use it for your summer picnics or to freshen up when you're feeling hot hot hot !
Make a decorative feature of your plants, with a little help from some eco-refill sachets and a simple but beautiful wooden "frame".

These plastic pots are perfect for holding small cactus plants that don't need too much space or water. Just fill them with potting compost (a special cactus mix is best), gently add your cactus (be careful if it's prickly!) and watch it grow (OK, it may take a while...). You'll find lots of helpful information about how to care for your cactus on the Internet.
Once you've finished using your shampoo to nourish your hair, why not use the bottle to nourish the birds? This is possibly our most difficult upcycling creation, but it's definitely worth the effort!
For all budding gardeners out there, why not use an eco-refill sachet to start off your plants?
Simply pierce holes for drainage, fill with compost and sow your seeds. Once your plants are ready to go outside, you can rinse the sachet out and put it away for next year! Plus, you can store it flat, so it takes up less space than standard pots!
