So you’re training regularly, building muscle and really getting through the protein shakes – but there’s one little problem. There’s a mountain of empty whey protein containers in the backyard.
If you’re creative, there are lots of things you can do with these empty whey protein containers. Here’s some suggestions from the practical to the slightly bizarre to get you started.

Turn it upside down and you’ve got a great bongo drum – even better strap a few of them together and you’ve got a cheap drum kit.
If you’ve got even more of a passion for percussion, put a little rice inside your empty container and you’ve got a shaker instead.
After a while, shelves and tabletops can look a little cluttered with all those knick-knacks that seem to get left about in the average household.
How about labelling up a few empty containers with various things like: Tools or stationery and then organizing your stuff.

The bigger the penny jar, the better — and your empty whey protein container should be able to take quite a lot of loose change.

Whether some kind of space helmet or the basis for a huge top hat, you’ll wish you hadn’t thrown it away when it’s time to make a costume.
Don’t waste your money on buying lots of expensive pottery plant pots.
With a little decoration your empty containers can provide the perfect home for the plants.
