Bling your coffee tins!
Here’s how to make the most of the tins that hold all our lovely coffee capsules, from bird feed containers to convenient pen holders or the ideal container in which to nurture your plants & herbs. Our kids love transforming them into penguins and seaside scenes too…as you’ll see if you read on!
But first, although the tins themselves are both made from recycled materials and are recyclable too, we are working hard to find more sustainable packaging for our capsules. For now though, the technology that allows our capsules to biodegrade and compost away also means our wonderful coffees are not 100% protected from oxygen, thanks to the paper-like seal on the capsule itself.
Now fresh coffee and oxygen are no match made in heaven, unfortunately, so the tins help prolong the freshness of our capsule coffee by minimising the oxygen that comes into contact with the capsules. However, we are not resting on our laurels so keep an eye out for developments in the very near future!
Meantime though, here’re a few ways to bling your tin!
1) Handy tool storage!
Save on buying unnecessary plastic tubs or storage boxes. Just throw your tools, spanners, nails and screws in our tins to keep tools handy, neat and tidy when you’re tackling your DIY jobs with a vengeance!
2) Great for plant-tin!
A customer sent us this brilliant pic of our Ethiopian tin being used to nurture a Christmas tree sapling. The tins are just as brilliant as colourful herb pots too, or for veg saplings that are easily transferable when they need to go into the ground.
3) Need to store feed?
Well look no further than our tins, which are the perfect solution. Small enough to fit any cupboard but big enough to contain plenty of feed for your feathered friends, they make it easy to carry the seed from kitchen to bird table or spread across the lawn.
Just use some chalk or a small sticker to remind you of which type of seeds or peanuts are in each and there you have it…the perfect way to keep your bird seed dry and convenient.
4) Keep the kids enter-tinned!
We challenged our kids to take our tins and get creative with them and here’s what they came up with.
Penny the Penguin, which is also p p p perfect for art and craft goodies. The Easter Bunny Ears pot for pencils and some seaside scenes too. All this and 2 hours of entertainment!
