Sprout is a concept that helps home gardeners, repurpose empty milk jugs as watering cans. It takes advantage of what you already have in a milk jug, which is a handle, a gallon’s worth of water capacity and with the addition of “Sprout”, you will have an evenly spaced flow of water. Concept by Evan Gant of Altitude. (Available at Target)
Family living site Disney Family Fun shows us how to repurpose an empty milk jug into a lunch container by washing it out, drawing lines as shown in the photo, cutting it out, folding, and attaching a hook and loop closure. This container is perfectly sized for a sandwich and a few carrot sticks or grapes. If you don't want to use this for food it also makes a clever gift box for small items.
