We reuse and recycle everything we can! Use them until you can't any longer.... then put in recyle bin! We make wonderful fancy lunches at home and put them into take out containers and they are much better than the "store bought" meals. We have had people ask where we bought our meals to go..... The answer: Home Sweet Home!
