Upcycle Your Seattle Elderberry


Earth Month has almost come to an end, but we aren’t scaling back on our planet-saving efforts. 

As part of our commitment to sustainability, we challenged ourselves to figure out the cutest, most creative ways to upcycle our Seattle Elderberry packaging. Check out a few of our favorite ideas, below.

Our Elderberry Syrup bottles make FANTASTIC vases for a flower stem or two!

To remove labels easily:

Fill your empty bottle with warm water AND submurge the bottle in a pot of warm water. Wait a few minutes and the label peels off seamlessly!

Love buying olive oil in bulk? Us too! Buying in bulk is a great way to save a few bucks (while saving on packaging!) But pouring oil from a bulk bottle is CHALLENING. 

Grab an empty Seattle Elderberry bottle and a clean Pour Spout and you've got yourself a great way to store olive oil! Plus, the pour spout makes for a VERY smooth way to drizzle EVOO onto your favorite foods!

Got broken crayons? If you've got kids or an artistic bent, you've probably got a few crayon nubbins hanging around in your art drawers. 

Let's make crayons! (these make ADORABLE valentines gifts as well!)

  • Preheat your oven to 250*F
  • Grab your crayon bits and a silicone gummy mold (available on our website!)
  • Place broken crayon bits into the mold (really fill it up!) and set on top of a baking sheet.
  • Place baking sheet with molds into the oven for 10-20 minutes, or until all crayon bits have melted.
  • Let crayons cool at room temperature for about 30 minutes
  • Color to your heart's content!
