Thank you to everyone who took part in Yakult’s Every Day Inspiration Challenge! I loved seeing and judging your entries, and I was bowled over by your clever and imaginative ideas.

Yakults Every Day Inspiration Challenge asked people to find inventive ways to reuse their iconic yoghurt drink bottles.

You spent four weeks crafting, painting and creating masterpieces. And we had a hard time judging them all!

Meet our winner

Winning Entry - Insects 3

Colette Mellor created a charming mobile with Yakult bottles transformed into insects and spiders. She also added small bells inside the bottles, so it doubled up as a wind chime.
