6 New Uses For Your Empty SaladPower Bottles
Emily Cooper, RDN,
It’s a sad feeling when you finally reach the last drop left in your SaladPower bottle. Sigh. While we haven’t quite come up with a bottle that automatically refills itself (yet), we do have a few ideas for repurposing them for bigger and better things than a trip to the recycling bin.
Here are 6 new ways you can give life to your empty SaladPower bottles that you probably never thought until now.
Start a Garden
Ready to grow some veggies of your own? Start with juice!
Those empty SaladPower bottles make the perfect home for starting seeds for your flower, herb, or veggie garden. Simply cut off the tops of each bottle, rinse out, fill with soil and seeds, water daily, and keep them in a warm, sunny spot to get growing!
Once they start to sprout, cut them free of their SaladPower homes, and transplant into your garden, pot, or veggie-growing vessel of choice to continue the circle of SaladPower life.
Whip Up a Dressing in Seconds
We all know SaladPower is the drinkable but it comes in handy for the utensil-required variety too. Just add equal parts oil and vinegar, fresh herbs, and a dash of salt and pepper to your empty bottle, cap, shake, and pour. This also makes it easy to stash in the fridge for the next time your fork-needing salad craving strikes.
Store Your Dry Goods
SaladPower isn’t just for juice anymore. Clean and dry out your bottles to store dry goods such as seeds, grains, oats, dried beans and more. Having a cap that you can close makes for easy storage and pouring without the risk of spilling the beans (literally).
Make an Instant Flower Vase
So your office admirer left a mysterious long-stemmed rose in your cubicle. Adorable (or possibly creepy), but now what do you do with it? Fill up that SP empty with some water, and smell the sweet scent of success and office romance.
If your Pinterest skills are on-point, you can even get fancy with embellishing your makeshift flower vase...instead of just pretending it’s not simply an empty vegetable juice bottle.
Use As an Stand-In Water Bottle
We’ve all had those days. You hit the snooze button a few too many times, your morning routine is a blur, and you’re just lucky to have made it out of the house with a full outfit on and juice in hand...Just not your water bottle..or your phone..or your wallet.
You’re on your own for those last two, but at least we got you covered in the hydration department. Chug down your juice. Refill with ice cold H2O. Repeat.
Make Jewelry or Art
Sure, the bottle itself is pretty darn handy on its own, but don’t forget about the humble bottle cap! Simply spray paint your leftover SaladPower caps and turn them into one of a kind jewelry or artwork you’d be proud to put on display...or sell to the highest bidder on etsy.

The Naturalistic Fallacy is a philosophical concept that what is found in nature is “pleasurable” and therefore “ethical” and anything that is “not pleasurable” is “unethical”. This coincides with the notion in the world of health and wellness that you should only purchase raw and organic foods with a short list of ingredients that you can pronounce. Though this may be true in some cases when it comes to food, it isn’t always accurate and in fact can be dangerous if you blindly follow this philosophy. We call this the Naturallistic Fallacy in the world of food. Continue reading to find out why!
