We have a tasty craft project for you to try..

At The Skinny Bakery we are deeply concerned about the importance of recycling plastic. That’s why we felt the need to share this hilarious/eco-friendly blog post with you all!

Upcycling is the new recycling. Our little plastic tubs are resistant, conveniently shaped and of marvellous quality. This is what makes them perfect for upcycling so put on your thinking cap and join us in upcycling your tubs. Here are some inspiration to get you started:
