If you are trying to minimize your environmental footprint and are looking for new and practical uses for your mason jars, you've come to the right place: we're starting a new post series just for that! Below are three of the simplest (but also most effective!) ways to replace waste with your mason jar.
Leftovers: Mason jars are the perfect way to store your leftovers. They're plastic and toxin free, great for portioning, and can be sealed tight for travel.
Coffee: Conventional single-use coffee cups are one of the biggest contributors to North American waste creation. Plan to carry your jar with you if you know you'll be buying a drink that day.
Takeout: Most restaurants/food chains are happy to accommodate if you ask for your food to be packaged in a container that you provide.
