with the crafting I do, I go through A LOT of glue sticks... I need something to do with the empty cartons, I don't want to throw them away, they're too... no-go-in-landfilly.  Any ideas?

They are just your basic elmers twist up glue sticks with the orange cap.  I don't know how else to describe them... the glue used to be purple...

Well, clean them out and melt them with plastic beads or something. It seems all things plasticy are getting melted makeovers these days.

Decorate the outside and make your own solid perfume:

Make a tiny purse-size deodorant:

You could also melt down crayon bits and pour them into the empty tube in layers to make one large crayon that changes colors as you use it. 

Elmer's has started recycling empty glue stick tubes:

I hope this helps!  If you use any of these ideas, I'd love to see them!
