Easy Eco-Tip: DIY Applesauce Cups

This might seem like a no-brainer, but with the plethora of individually packaged food products out there, it might not. Instead of buying individual servings of applesauce in throw away containers, get yourself a tight sealing, reusable container and package it yourself. You’ll be well on your way to a waste-free lunch!




Even better – make your own homemade applesauce out of organic apples!

  1. Mmmmm…those brownies look delicious Missy! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Great green idea! I find applesauce to be such a fabulous healthy sweetener for baked goods too, like my Sneaky Chef brownies: http://www.thesneakychef.com/free-recipe-Motts-brownies.php

  3. My little one loves applesauce, thanks for sharing.

  4. It might seem like a “no brainer” but when I go to the store and I see the sheer volume of individually packaged, single serve convenience items, I’m just shocked. So thanks for the tip … it’s not only earth-friendly but if we make our own products to package, it’ll be much healthier as well. And don’t our kids deserve that? 🙂

  5. I agree Small Footprints – it really is shocking how many single-serve food products are out there tempting us every day. I try to avoid those sections of the grocery store completely.

  6. I agree, my family is making greener choices and I have apple sauce cups I was looking for a craft or a way to upcycle these. If anyone has an idea I’d be greatful if u could let me know thanks!

  7. Hi Madelena – have you looked on Pinterest? I bet you could find some ideas for repurposing apple sauce cups there!
