    Talk to local schools that have art classes. Most art teachers would love to have a source for things like plastic and metal bottle caps, glass or plastic jars with lids, toilet paper and paper towel rolls and much more . I have a dear friend that teaches art in high school, so I collect all kind of stuff for her. No one recycles glass around here, so she uses the jars for her paints. When they have a project, she measures out what they need from the larger can, and the paint is not wasted. The bottle caps and other things are used for art projects. I love when i get pictures from her of all the things they have made.

    I am an artist. Our local Chinese takeout place uses some rather fancy plastic box with lids. I have used these to store pens and pencils. They are also a good size for packing a sandwich for lunch. I love the plastic coffee cans and use those for water for washing my paint brushes. They are also great for storage or for a mini bucket for cleaning around the house.

    I wish egg cartons would stop using Styrofoam .They should change to cardboard or recycled plastic or up cycled .

    I'm amazed at the creativity displayed by some of the people who leave comments here. Very impressive. Thanks.

    We have ordered pizzas and other foods online. They come in Styrofoam boxes with lids. I have given away many to friends who grow plants in the main compartment and use the lids when it goes below freezing. They stack them on their sides toward the sunshine.
