How to upcycle your Nala packaging

How to upcycle your Nala packaging

You have this beautiful packaging that surrounded and protected your Nala deodorant, and now you’re wondering what to do with it.

While we prioritize recycled & recyclable packaging, we encourage you to upcycle your packaging whenever possible. From planters to jewelry containers, our customers continue to inspire us in the solutions they discover. 

Upcycling your bathroom storage

We’ve probably all had a moment (or a hundred) where the bathroom vanity cabinet has overwhelmed us. That’s why our packaging makes a great solution to corral all those loose items. 

  • Keep your Q-tips tidy and easy to access.
  • Don’t let those bobby pins run wild. Always have them at hand by organizing them in our box. 
  • Become your girlfriend’s favourite bathroom and keep tampons handy. 
  • Keep an empty lid for when you remove your earrings, rings, or necklaces before a shower. Safer there than down the drain!

Using your empties for chic desk organization


Working from home? We feel you there! Why not have your desk Zoom ready by keeping things tidy and storing your paperclips, pens, or other loose ends in our packaging? 

Storing your seedlings for spring

Have a small bud you picked from the garden? Looking to sprout those spring seeds? Maybe you’re starting an herb garden? Our packaging is great for small flowers and seedlings and makes it easy to transport your flowers and herbs to a bigger pot once they’re ready. 


Use for storing travel necessities

To keep your cords and phone chargers from getting tangled, throw them in our outer box packaging and they’ll be easy to access when you need them. 


Nala containers make for great art projects

If you’re looking for an afternoon activity, why not try your hand at painting? Whether it’s an abstract print or a geometric design, you can use our lids as stamps and paint with them. These are great for designing cards, playtime with kids, or even creating a new art piece for your home. 

While there are so many innovative ways to upcycle your Nala packaging, if you don’t want to receive the outer box in your future orders, we now offer a reduced packaging option at checkout which comes without the outer box.  When you are done with your packaging, be sure to follow instructions on how to properly dispose of each component.
