Glass jars are a zero-waster’s goldmine. Since glass is 100 percent recyclable and has the ability to be endlessly recycled without losing its quality, they are perfect for storing just about anything. 

Zero-wasters use glass jars to store food and liquid in the refrigerator, the pantry, and so much more. But you don’t fall victim to online zero-waste perfection; there’s no need to shell out more money for Weck jars or only accept masons into your glass jar collection.
