After watching Sometimesdaily With Amanda Congdon – she playfully suggested using jars for drinking glasses to save money. As a big fan of drinking out of mason jars already – this episode got me thinking… Amy is always complaining about BPA leaking into our food when we use and reuse our plastic/tupperwear containers which I hate. This on top of the fact that we end up throwing away a lot of cool glass containers (we recycle them) – I decided to start throwing away (recycling) the plastic containers and to start using the jars for food storage.
Sure – some jars are better for storage than others, but I think this could not only be a way to save money/stop from using as much plastic – but it could also be pretty darn cool and creative. What do you think?
