Hi there! Looking to save space in your recycling box/bag? Well, if you drink a lot of juice from the 1L Tetra-pak style containers, here is a way to fold them up so they take up less space AND don't come unfolded.

You could, of course, pop out the tabs and flatten the box, but that's no fun! I'll show you another way. One that will better exercise your fingers and look cool when it's done.

First, drink all the juice out of the container. When box is empty, proceed to step 1.

Step 1: Open plastic lid and lift upper tabs

Pretty self-explanatory...
I knew and used the first half, but not second part. It may be useless, but it saves a lot of space when recycling. Thanks for sharing!
