Every year we hear about Earth Day, mainly through the schools
teaching our kids that we need to 'save the earth'; but what does this
really mean for you? Basically, anything you can do to be a little more
Eco-friendly, such as saving gas, or buying recycled material
products. Basically, it means decreasing the carbon footprint on the
planet in any way. Baytec Containers
was founded on finding and re-purposing used containers, then providing
them to the individual so they can take advantage of reusing these
containers that industries simply grind.
In our Container Family have several products made with recycled materials such as the New 50 Gallon Flat Back Rain Barrel.
This Rain Saver Barrel is designed to esthetically enhance outdoor
features and set near the wall of your home or business. This water
collection barrel is commonly used to harvest water, which reduces the
carbon footprint as well. This particular Water Barrel is available in 6
various colors to match to any natural
shade and now only $139.95 with Free Shipping.
The durable solid mold design allows rain water collection through a
recessed dip and corrosion resistant screen at the top, and has two side
holes and a faucet to disburse the water at various levels.
Need something a bit more economical? Look at our reconditioned and durable Used Containers.
These containers have only been used 1 time and most had some sort of
FDA product transported previously. These can only be used for personal
use or disposal use, but provide a good cost efficient means to various
your in the market for any type of container look to us to find your
needs and help reduce a little of the footprint on our Earth.
What do you usually do to your shipping boxes? Throw them away? Recycle them to something useful? I'd personally go for the latter. Today we are going to talk about reusing cardboard boxes to get organized.
Good organization makes us feel good. Being organized for low cost to none is even better! That is why the idea of using cardboard boxes to help us stay coordinated might be the best thing to apply in our lives. Let's see how we can improve the effectiveness of our house with cardboard boxes.
There is nothing more annoying and time consuming than trying to dig into a number of small things that you just throw into the drawer. Drawer dividers help keep things in order. However, a drawer divider is not exactly cheap if you want to put it in every drawer. This is where you can use the leftover cardboard boxes to make your own DIY drawer divider. The video below will help you to make it.
This will take longer to do, make a coffee table!

Mylar Bags are your best bet when preparing for
long term storage. While most of us may be content with ordinary Food Saver
bags or other Zip-Lock Bags, it is imperative for us to realize that this will
result in simply overworking the Oxygen Absorber and
forcing it to under-perform. Read on to know why.
Mylar bags are Oxygen Barriers
When using an Oxygen Absorber for long term storage, it is
best to use a Mylar
Foil Oxygen Barrier bag – for the sole reason that even the littlest amount
of Oxygen seepage into your storage will make the Oxygen Absorber
dissipate 7 times faster.
How to Store Food for Long term
The following is a step by step guide on Long Term Food
Storage using Mylar
Bags. We put this together for all our patrons who are ready for some DIY
Keep ready your Mylar bags. They
come in various sizes to suit every requirement! Click here to see the many
sizes on SALE now!
When considering Food Items that are sensitive to
humidity and can potentially become rancid if stored improperly, it’s best to
use a desiccant in combination with an Oxygen Absorber. The recommended use of
a desiccant is in a 5 Gallon or bigger Mylar bag.
Place the desiccant at the very bottom of the Mylar Bag as the
With that done, fill the bag with food items ranging
from pulses, coffee, grains, dried meat, candies etc.
At the top of the food, throw in an Oxygen
absorber. A 300cc oxygen absorber is suitable for 1 gallon Mylar bag.
Use this special Mylar
Bag Hot Jaw Heat Sealer to seal the bag effectively. Do remember that,
generic food bag sealers will not seal the Mylar Foil efficiently. This is
because they cannot produce enough heat required for the thickness of the Mylar Bags.
Always remember to use a permanent Marker to “Mark”
your food item – with the packaging date.
It is advisable to store these bags in a plastic
pail with a tight lid (gasket type). Pick one from our large range of Plastic Pails, Jugs
Quick Fact: The air around you is made up of 21%
oxygen, 78% Nitrogen (1% other gases) and most bacteria thrive in the presence
Why use Oxygen Absorbers?
It has been scientifically
proved that Oxygen Absorbers aid in keeping stored food fresh for
longer. They extend the shelf-life of many food products such as Beans, Coffee,
Candy, Confectionery, Dried Fruits, Flour, Dairy Products, Pharmaceuticals,
Cookies, Cakes and lots more! What’s more – you can use these handy Oxygen Absorber
Sachets to store and maintain even pet food, first aid kits, and paintings!
We recommend using them with Mylar bags for best
performance. But without ado, you can also use them with zip-lock bags, mason
jars and other food containers. These little sachets can do miracles in
preserving food and eliminating odors!
How do they work?
The Oxygen Absorber
Sachets contain within them a mixture of iron powder and sodium chloride.
We know very well that Iron is prone to rusting – this very phenomenon is used
to our benefit in the Oxygen Absorber
Sachets. The iron powder naturally absorbs the moisture and oxygen and
leaves behind purely Nitrogen, when the Oxygen Absorber is kept in any
container with food – bacteria cannot thrive in a pure nitrogen environment.
This in turn prolongs the longevity of the food/pharmaceuticals stored along
with the Absorber. Some modern Oxygen Absorber packets also have Activated
Carbon which actively absorbs other kinds of gases.
