In addition to being working on a healthy and sustainable lifestyle for yourself, there are also enough ways in which you can help the environment in a sustainable way! That is why in this blog we offer three original ideas for reusing empty protein pots.

Storing dry food and pet food

Many protein pots are the perfect size for storage. Moreover, the pots are a lot firmer than the bags in which products are often packed. You can therefore use protein pots ideal for storing food. Especially in the fitness industry it can save a lot of money to buy food in bulk. Consider, for example, nuts and seeds, but also rice or pasta. You can then easily store this in the empty pots. This can also be a solution for pet food. The lid of the pot can even be used as a power bowl!

What should you do for this?

  • Remove the label and completely clean the pot From glue residues with alcohol and a work towel

  • both the container and the measuring cup were thorough, so that it is ready again for subsequent use

  • < P> Use a waterproof marker or stickers to give the pot a name or decorate

  • Fill the protein pot with the bag of food and place the measuring cup/spoon on it. This way you can easily remove the food, just as you did with your protein for this!

Storing children's toys

Many parents will recognize this. You can find it everywhere: small toy cars, barbie dolls, lego stones, beads and so on.

In addition, you can also renovate your own food in these pots. Some spices, herbs or plants such as basil, parsley or thyme can easily be renovated in these pots. Curious how to approach this?
