Creative ways to re-purpose a used cd spindle

Going green isn't just about using clean energy alternatives like solar and wind.  Its also about reducing, reusing, re-purposing, and recycling the waste we generate in our lives. 

Below, I've posted a few creative ways to re-purpose those unused cd spindles you may have lying around.

#1.  Grow a plant

This is a cool idea for starting plants for the garden, or just to have around the home or office.

#3.  A bird feeder



Now you can improve the environment 2 ways instead of 1.  Reusing the spindle and feeding wild birds.

#4.  Hamburger Patty Press



I'm not sure about the size of the patty, but it sure is a great way to press out larger quantities of burgers in a short time.  Would be great for large barbecues or family functions.

#5.  Yarn and wire storage




This is actually one of the more useful ones I've seen.  Its a very good way to organize yarn or wiring for hobbyists and electricians alike.

#6.  Tissue dispenser



In a word:  Crafty.  Though I'm not sure how well this would work in the bathroom, it's a great idea for those who wouldn't mind using toilet paper instead of tissues for those stuffy noses.

We're always so quick to throw out everything we no longer need.  If we put enough thought into it, a lot of our everyday trash can be re-purposed into other useful items.  It's just another step one must take to help reduce our carbon footprints on this planet.
