Top 7 Ways to Recycle Strawberry Containers

One of our favorite holidays is just around the corner – Earth Day! But we here at Wish Farms think that everyday should be Earth Day. To celebrate, Wish Farms has the top seven ways to recycle, upcycle and repurpose strawberry containers!


Once you are finished with your delicious strawberries, you can save the container and use it to store small items such as toys, markers, and more. The berry containers are the perfect size to store these items inside of a toy box, on a shelf, or wherever you want to store them!

Yarn Dispenser

Do you have a craft room in your house? If your craft area is anything like ours, it’s difficult to keep the odds and ends, like yarn spools, organized. We have a solution. Two spools of yarn fit neatly into one of our strawberry containers. Once the yarn is secured, use the slits in the side of the container to thread the perfect amount of yarn through. Voila!

**BONUS! Since we’re talking about recycling, why not start shopping for your fresh berries with a reusable tote bag? They’re adorable, environmentally friendly, and sometimes retailers even offer you a discount for using them!
