Christmas Decoration Ideas

How is your Christmas preparation going? Does your house smell like freshly baked gingerbread and chocolate cookies? Is the Christmas tree up? Are the gifts already wrapped nicely and placed under the tree? By this time, you might have had everything in order. But in case the house hasn’t shown any sign of Christmas spirit yet, here are some suggestions to perk it up.

Christmas-decorated tins and pails
Easy, ready-made Christmas themed tins and pails will definitely get the kids excited. Especially when you put some candies and chocolates inside, yummm… not only the tins and pails make great decoration, they are also fine containers for foods and/or Christmas gifts.

DIY gift baskets and centerpieces
Got some steel buckets dusting about in the house? Make use of them by turning them into gift baskets and centerpieces as directed here. The cute Santa pails will most likely make the living room merry and bright!

Christmas gifts wrapped in newspaper
Reuse the newspaper and eliminate the need of buying gift wrappers. Newspaper and scrap paper make great wrappers and give rustic feeling to the presents. You'll also be kinder to the environment!

Do you have other unusual Christmas decoration ideas? Especially if they involve reusing and recycling the things around the house, that'll be even better! More and more people should do that in every holiday season.

Inspiring Eco Christmas Trees

Christmas is coming soon. People around the world erect their Christmas trees and decorate them as merrily as possible. These Christmas trees below are quite interesting. They are not of real trees that are cut down; instead, they are made of recycled goods. Check them out.

Book Evergreen Christmas Tree
Save the trees by building your own Christmas tree with library books, like what these young book lovers at Gleeson Library in California did.


Murano Glass Tree
This amazing Murano Glass Tree compiled of 1000 Murano glasses was installed in Venice, Italy. It's 28 feet tall and 10 feet in diameter.


Shopping Cart Tree
Anthony Schmitt was inspired to make this shopping cart tree by the 1960's aluminum tree. He made it come true in 2009 by building this tree consisting of 86 shopping carts.


Beer Bottles Christmas Tree
This Christmas tree is made of 1000 Heineken beer bottles and is placed on the road of Nanjing, Shanghai.


Recycled CD and Cassette Tape Tree
Have you got a lot of unused CD's that are just lingering around, dusting? Why not turning them around to a beautiful Christmas tree like what artist Tom Deininger did? This CD and cassette tape tree was installed in 2010 at the Chelsea Market in NYC.


They're pretty fun, aren't they? Most importantly, this act saves most trees from being chopped off for the holiday season. Build your artificial Christmas tree, whether it's made of glass bottles, plastic bottles, jars, or anything you can see and think of around you, it'll keep another tree alive for another season.

Shipping, and Cardboard Boxes

When the padded mailers are not enough to contain your gifts, you will need one of these shipping, packing and cardboard boxes. They are each designed to fit different kinds of things with different shapes, weights and vulnerabilities so that the contents stay secured and safe inside these boxes. You can also use them when you need to move from one house to another. Now let’s see what each box has to offer.


Side loading boxes are perfect for containing documents, magazines, photos and frames.


Perfect for small, lightweight products, the pye-lock tucks on the cartons allow them to be locked securely.


These are awesome to use as layering for important documents. Avoid photos or documents accidentally cut when the receiver opens the envelope. Putting these pads will prevent wrecking the real document.


The 2-piece boxes are economical and stackable. Put your documents inside and put on the removable lids to keep it clean and tidy. Prints on the exterior of the boxes make easy identification.


These boxes offer better look for your file storage. They’re white, pre-printed for identification and tabs on lid interlock through hand holes add more strength.


Fancy sending book or picture frame (with picture obviously) as Christmas gift? Ship and protect it with a corrugated bookfold.


Flat mailers are perfect to send documents, photos, artworks or reports. It’s not easy to bend or crush it and it’s lightweight too to save on postage! Alternatively, you can also use the padded mailing bags to further protect this type of content.


You’ve got to love this item. It’s super strong. It’s lightweight (great to save on postage!). It’s easy to fold! Take a look at the rich sizes of these mailers now.


CD is the Christmas gift? Send it away with this Self seal CD mailer. It’s made specifically to protect CD cases during shipping with easy pull tab opening and peel and seal closure.


Just like the above CD mailer but for DVD’s (up to 4 DVD’s in a box).


Is it a large photo print that you want to send? Or a painting? Send it with a fiberboard mailing tube. Simply roll it and snug it inside this tube.

So there are so many ways to brighten up beloved people who live far from us. A meaningful Christmas gift shipped properly is one of them.

Let's Decorate the Unused Plastic Containers!

There must be a time when you feel so fed up with the so many unused plastic containers at home. Rather than throwing them away and let them fill the landfill waiting for some hundred years to degrade themselves, why not reuse them for something useful? Perhaps decorate them so that they're more pleasant-looking? Whether these are plastic buckets, once-food containers, or soda bottles, we can change them into great house decoration and containers at the same time. Read on to know how to do it.

Clean the containers
This container decorating project will involve some painting activity to make them stand out. Therefore, the containers need to be cleaned properly. Remove all labels with eco-friendly product or just use solution of baking soda (or vinegar) and water for labels that are hard to take out. This will also remove previous odors from the containers.

Paint the containers
It's time to give the containers some color. Paint or spray them with the paint of your choice and get another coat if necessary. Allow at least two hours before adding the second coat for the first one to dry.

Add some textures to the paint
You could be happy already with the painted containers by now. But you could also add more sparks onto the design. What about polka dot, striped or hand-painted textures? Simply use round sponge to make the polka dot, or draw guide lines for the striped pattern, or paint small trees, flowers or anything you like on the containers.

Let everything dry and use the containers to keep stationary, children toys, shoes, etc. You can put them on the floor or make holes on them and hang them on the wall. The kids will love them too if you choose brighter colors! Happy decorating.

How to Clean a Reusable Food Plastic Containers from Stains

Cleaning a stained food plastic food container can be such a tough job if you don't know how to handle it. There are several ways that you can try to remove this colored stain from your food grade plastic containers as described in the following.

Wash the food containers with warm water
The first most effective ways to get rid of greases from the last food you stored in the plastic container is by washing it with warm water. Rinse the container with the warm water, then wash it with a dishwashing soap. Dry it with a kitchen towel. This will help the stain-removing act get started.

Remove the stains
Removing the stains from the food container is obviously the main action. You can choose and try some of these ways and see which one works best for your container.

·         Let the sun do the work
If the sun shines brightly at the time you want to get rid of the stain from your plastic container, you can try this method. Just like sun fades the color away from your clothes and hair, it could also do the job with your plastic containers. After washing, leave the container under the sun exposure for two, three or more hours. The stain should fade away or even disappear completely. Wash again with warm water if it does.

·         Use bleach
In some cases, the sun only can't banish the food stains from the container. This is the time when you may consider using bleach. To do this, make a solution of one part bleach and two parts of water. Fill your clean food containers, and let the bleach soak for half an hour in a well-ventilated area. Afterwards, throw away the bleach solution and by wearing rubber gloves, wash your plastic container with dishwashing liquid and warm water. Dry your container with kitchen towel.

·         Deodorize the container
If there is a bad smell coming from your plastic container, use a baking soda solution to clean the container. Mix a teaspoon of baking soda with a cup of water, then using a sponge of a brush, clean the container with the baking soda solution. You can also use a diluted vinegar solution to do this.

One of the methods above should be able to clear the stains and/or stinks in your food plastic container. For future use, spray the insides of the plastic containers lightly with cooking oil before placing the food. This will help prevent the containers from getting stains. Good luck!

AeroVent 3 Can Recycling System

Every container must be completely dry and free of any liquid content to be considered as non-hazardous metal. In some cases, you can dry the containers with some of these methods explained here. However, for aerosol cans you might need a special tool to get that liquid out of the container. You might need AeroVent 3 Can Recycling System.

The AeroVent 3 Can Recycling System takes out residual liquids in aerosol cans, converting them from hazardous solid waste to recyclable one. When there is no liquid inside these cans, de-pressurized cans can be recycled, crushed and then called non-hazardous scrap metal. This system complies with EPA 40 CFR 261.7 and 40 CFR 261.23 regulations.

The complete AeroVent 3 Can Recycling System includes vapor absorbing carbon filter, support stand, grounding wire, and activated carbon filter. The latter can be replaced after processing about 600 cans, which can be ordered here. The can recycling system fits 2" bung of 30 or 55 gallon steel drum with the ability of holding up to 3 cans of 10" high and 2 ½"-3" diameter. There is a cobalt-tipped puncture pin that pricks the end of the can to release pressure and capture the residue inside the drum. Once the container is dry, the job is done and it can then be pressed with one of these drum/can compactors.

If you deal with aerosol cans or similar containers, do consider to have this recycling system so that your solid waste can be processed more easily and properly. It'll save cost for your disposal budget and it'll also be kinder to the environment compared to trashing hazardous wastes. Check it out!

This accessory lets you easily remove the compacted trash. The split drum is made of polyethylene, which can be lined with a polyethylene liner where trash is compacted. After the compaction is completed, release the front latches and take out the liner with the compacted trash. Easy and convenient.

As you can see, the accessories above have their own advantages to some types of waste. Choose one or two that may be useful for the trash you typically dispose to make your life easier and more efficient.

Compacting Trash with Pack-Master Trash Compactor

Compacting trash is a standard practice in most industries in the United States. It increases the density of the trash before being transported to the landfill, which ultimately reduces the cost of transfer cost that could be enormous when trash is not compacted. The Pack-Master Trash Compactor helps industries compact their solid waste with 4 to 1 compaction ratio. This compactor reduces the costs normally spent for waste disposal; therefore increases its recycling revenue.

Gather your industrial solid waste, such as aluminum cans, crush paper, absorbents, disposable clothing and filters into a 55 gallon drum and compact the whole thing into scrap metal with the Pack-Master's 4000 lbs. of compacting power.

You have three compactor models to choose from; i.e. Manual Pack-Master Trash Compactor, Air-Operated Trash Compactor and Spark Resistant Air Trash Compactor. The manual compactor promotes easy, simple and safe use, while air-operated one features higher speed operation. The spark resistant trash compactor offers a HDPE-covered ram plate and drum skid area with LDPE-covered frame uprights. Place an open-head drum up to 39" tall and pump the ram lever like automobile jack and let it completely cycle in 1 minute.

The trash compactors are designed with excellent safety measures, which include the control arm that keeps user's hands and face at distance with the compacter. It will also stop cycle when arm is lowered or dropped.

Compacting your solid trash this way saves you a lot of money from the expensive disposal transport cost. It's definitely a good idea to have one of these around at the workplace.

The Importance of Draining Liquid in Drums before Crushing or Compacting

Before crushing or compacting steel drums, cans or pails, it is highly important to drain all the liquid content inside before crushing to avoid any material turning rusty, especially the compactor itself. Also, we have to make sure that these liquids are not hazardous or special treatment must be applied before it contaminates other stacks of metals, which could later be hazardous as well for humans. Next is how we drain these liquids before crushing drums.

For non-hazardous liquids

If you are completely sure that the liquids in the drum you are about to compact is non-hazardous, simply let it drain to another container in an upside down manner overnight. When it’s done, wipe the whole drum from any leftover liquids.

For hazardous liquids

Follow the safety procedure of disposing hazardous liquid. If it can still be reused, then keep it for future use. In the motor oil case, for example, you should NOT drain it in the toilet, sink, ground or any place that may allow it to have contact with clean water and contaminate the whole pond and living things living in it. Instead, go to the nearest mechanic shop and ask them if you can leave the used motor oil there. Most will happily accept it, as mechanics know how to recycle used motor oil to new usable oil. Use applicable safety gear when handling/draining hazardous liquids to keep yourself safe. Make sure the drum is totally free of hazmat, and then you can start crushing it.

For unknown liquids

You don’t know whether the liquid stored in the drums are safe or hazardous. In this case, you should perform a test or have a special consultant to test the content of your drum to make sure it’s safe for disposal. This may be costly, though still not as costly as injuring many lives when the liquid contaminates the environment.

Act responsibly for the better future of our children. If every business and household does this, a brighter future for our kids is definitely plausible.
