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!
