Crates: Creative Uses

People often tell us they find our “Darling Clementines” crates both useful and environmentally friendly. Unlike the plastics and other synthetics, which accounts for most of our food packaging today, our wooden crates are both bio-degradable and readily re-absorbed into the environment. What’s more, these cute little crates can be put to a variety of different practical uses. Some people use them to store tools, cosmetics, kitchen utensils and the like. Others use them to make go-carts and toys on wheels for their toddlers. Some use them as pie crates or containers for dried flower displays, as plant pots. Some use them as firewood. Some even use them as toy houses for teddy bears.
