Going Green: 7 Repurposing Ideas for Your Beauty Box Organza Bags


If you’re a Vegan Cuts Beauty Box subscriber, you probably have a stash of pink organza bags sitting around someplace. If you’re green like we are, then you know they don’t need to be used once and then thrown away! Today we’re sharing a few ideas for repurposing these flashy little bags.

7 Clever Ways to Repurpose Your Beauty Box Organza Bags

1. Bulk Foods Bag
Even though people might look twice as you fill your hot pink organza bags with lentils, rice, nuts, and beans, you can smile knowing you’re not using bulky plastic bags that are destined to end up in a landfill. Who knows, you might even get some compliments!

2. Gift Bag/Party Favor Bag
There’s no need to buy mass-produced gift bags. Use your organza bags as a way to “wrap” small presents or as party favor bags for birthday bashes, baby showers, or other celebrations.

3. Potpourri Satchet
Simply fill an organza bag with your favorite potpourri and tuck in a dresser drawer or hang in a closet–you’ll have lovely-scented clothes and linens in no time!

4. Candy Bag
Sweet tooth? Hide your favorite candies and treats from fellow sugar enthusiasts. Lollipops, caramels, mini chocolate squares, and bubblegum fit nicely (and stay camouflaged) in an organza bag.

5. Games Bag
Taking a road trip with the kids? Keep them busy and entertained by filling an organza bag with small games and toys. Examples include a deck of cards, markers, small pad of paper, stickers, figurines, building blocks, and little tubs of modeling clay.

6. Toiletries
Why not repurpose your organza bag the way you received it? It’s just right for travel-sized toiletries and beauty products. Airport security won’t be happy, so make sure to stow it in your checked luggage. Or, place items in an approved ziplock first if it’s going in your carry-on.

7. Clothespin Storage 
Hopefully I’m not the only person who still uses clothespins to hang laundry. I live in an apartment building with a drying room and having clothespins keeps my wet laundry from falling on the floor. One organza bag holds just enough clothespins for a small load of laundry.

    Somebody should come up with an easy-to-make running tutu pattern using these. Is it possible?

  2. I use mine to put little make up and perfume produces in :3 it’s better than having them scattered across my bathroom sink!

  3. These are great ideas! I love the bulk food idea! Our co-op offers paper bags and plastic – rice doesn’t work well in either of those, but I could see using the organza. You could also save them up and give them to goodwill or give to a friend that could use them to send their etsy wares.
