We at Sip & Savor love to recycle. And it's not just us. Americans are increasingly recycling more materials every day, and our cans and bottles are among the most recycled containers in the country.

But what you may not know is that there are plenty of ways you can reuse our containers for do-it-yourself projects around the house.

For example, you can repurpose the aluminum tabs from cans to take care of a few DIY jobs. Check out this helpful tip for hanging your pictures. And here is a video that shows clever ways to tackle jobs in your closet, your backyard, and even help out on a fishing trip.

With the same cans you take the tabs from, you can transform a container into a flower vase to decorate your house.

Remember that recycling means our containers will be reused, so we help conserve our natural resources. It is good for the planet, and it can also be fun.
