Curb your environmental footprint.

This week, let's kickstart the discussion on how mason jars can have a positive impact on the environment by significantly reducing your environmental footprint.

This 2013 article posted by CBC stated that Canadians "produce more garbage per capita than any other country on earth." This contributed to a 15th place ranking among 17 developed nations with regard to environmental efficacy.

Undoubtedly, one of the easiest ways to minimize waste creation as an individual is to cut down on the amount of food-related waste we each produce. Mason jars are an excellent way to easily cut out single-use containers. In particular, the zero waste movement makes versatile use of mason jars for everything from food prep and storage, to home organization and DIYs.

But even if you're not able to commit to living fully zero waste, making a couple of small changes in your daily routine can significantly reduce your environmental impact.
