What can I do with...

The Times' eco-worrier blogger Anna Shepherd has found this great website where people can suggest uses for waste materials - anything from take-away materials to out of date condoms.

I love doing this sort of thing:

- I picked up a tip once from the Guardian that tetrapak bottles make great BBQ firelighters. They do as they are made from waxed paper - but make sure you cut out the plastic spout first.
- We used to save Nutella jars as tumblers, but now we enough for about 3 dozen friends coming around for a glass of juice.
- Never throw away bubble wrap if you are a gardener - it comes in v. useful for frost proofing.

Any more for any more?
