20 Ways to Reuse your Wacky Apple Containers

We picked the packaging for our juice and applesauce for a few different reasons. One, is because it can be recycled and two is because it can be reused. 

We believe in leaving a small carbon footprint with the way we grow, process, export and package our snacks and continue to try and do our best to be conscious of ways to always be improving and evolving in this area. 

Because we care about this issue we want to give you a few ideas of how you can reuse your Wacky Apple containers.
