How To Recycle Marbles

how to recycle marbles Marbles used to be very popular and I don't notice them in stores as much anymore. When cleaning out my grandparents old house we came across a huge bag of marbles. None of us really had a use for them so I came to the internet to find ideas on how to prevent them going to the landfill. Here's some ideas I found:

  • Use them in place or along with gravel in a fish tank or aquarium
  • Use for decoration around stems of potted plants
  • Put them in the bottom of a vase that's too tall
  • Mix in with cement for a decorative stone
  • Donate to second hand store or charity
I think mine are going to Goodwill.
