3. Repurpose JarsUpcycle your glass jars into many uses throughout your home to start living a zero-waste lifestyle. Many of your favourite grocery items come in glass jars – pasta sauce, pickles, jams – and they make the perfect reusable container once you have finished off the delicious food. These are far better for the environment than plastic containers and will save you cleaning time and money. You can use glass jars in the kitchen for fermenting, storing food, or as shakers. Plus, they can be used all around your house for gardening, storage containers, and fun crafts. The creative opportunities are endless.
