Going Zero Waste? Our jars and kilners might solve lots of your problems!
Committed to reducing plastic use and wondering how to go zero waste? A glass clip top jar is a pantry essential for any plastic free kitchen. With an airtight rubber seal and an easy close mechanism, the 500ml jar can be used to preserve jams and condiments or to store soups, sauces and stews. You can also use the glass jar in your pantry to stock up on rice, dried pastas and nuts and seeds.
Before single use plastic packaging began to dominate the supermarket shelves, the clip top jar was a kitchen staple. Your grandparents would have used them to store all kinds of kitchen goods in sealed, hygienic containers.
As well as reducing the amount of harmful plastic waste you produce, switching to a plastic free kitchen could also have benefits for your health. Several reports have highlighted concerns over bpa toxins and other harmful chemicals contained in plastic packaging. The fear is that these chemicals could leach into our food chain and cause a range of health concerns.
Kilner jars are a great way of reducing plastic use in your home. Great for the environment, great for you!
Can I reuse the glass jar after I’m done?
Yes! If you’re really thinking about how to go zero waste, then you’ll need to find fun and interesting ways to recycle products once you’re finished using them for their original purpose. Why not get creative and work out ways to turn your glass clip top jar into a percussion instrument using dry rice or lentils?
