Introduction: Repurposing a Cooler for COVID-19 Shopping
First, you'll need a cooler with a nice long handle that has two circular holes on the ends - this is typical of most handles, so it won't be too hard to find.
Step 1: Cutting a Slot Into the Handle
Next, cut a horizontal slot no wider than a quarter inch into the end of your handle on both sides, as shown in the picture.
Step 2: Attaching Your New Handle
Now, slide your handle onto the first rack of your shopping cart (the one closest to the cart's handlebar) and let it rest against the original handlebar, as shown.
Step 3: Get Ready to Shop!
Now you're free of those icky used shopping cart handlebars!
Step 4: Want to Use the Rest of Your Cooler? Here's How...
As you know, COVID-19 has turned food delivery into a nightmare. By donating your cooler for restaurants to use as a transportation device for packaged food, you reduce the number of contacts the package has with human hands and thereby make the process safer for customers. As you can see, there are plenty of ways to repurpose for COVID!
