Getting to the bottom of your almond butter jar is usually a sad thing, but thanks to a genius hack from Lee Tilghman of Lee from America, you’ll get really excited once you reach the protein-packed finish line. Plus you’ll help save the planet in the process.

The healthy-living guru recently posted an Instagram of her Earth-friendly smoothie she makes using the hard-to-reach leftover scraps of your nut butter container that all too often just end up getting tossed. How, you ask? Simply by repurposing the container itself as the smoothie cup. Not only is it a great way to reuse your jar, but it also makes for a delicious meal to start the day.

A post shared by Lee Tilghman (@leefromamerica) on

“Earth day is right around the corner so I’m getting ready for it by drinking a smoothie from a nearly-finished jar of almond butter,” Tilghman writes. “It’s a win for the planet, but arguably a bigger win for my tastebuds/soul.”

By repurposing whatever you can, you can drastically reduce the amount of waste in the world. Considering 270 million tons of plastic are currently in the ocean, turning an old nut butter jar into an Instagram-worthy smoothie cup is the nutrition-boosting, Earth-improving way to go.

Here’s your ultimate guide to that eco-friendly life. Or, check out these chic coffee mugs to minimize waste.
