DIY: Tips to Reuse your Big T NYC Glass Jars

Ways to Creatively Repurpose your Big T NYC glass jars.

Sustainability is a big deal to us. That's why we use only 100% organic ingredients and package our teas in reusable and recyclable glass jars.

After you're done enjoying your loose leaf tea, what do you do with the jar? Recycling is good, but it's even better to reuse it, then recycle it. Our jars can be very versatile in their next lives! Read on to learn a few ways you can get creative, while doing good for the earth.

PLANT AN INDOOR GARDEN

DIY Ways to repurpose Big T NYC glass jars

Use your empty jars as plant holders! Plant natural, organic herbs and spread them around your house to add a dash of green and boost cleaner air. Not only will you have fresh, readily-available herbs to spice up your meals but planting also helps relieve stress.

We like to plant edible herbs like basil, cilantro and oregano. These can be purchased at Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, Home Depot or any local gardening store, and they add flavor to any meal.

MAKE YOUR OWN CANDLES

Another way to reuse empty Big T NYC glass jars is to make hand-poured candles. Lighting candles helps relax and soothe the body and (bonus!) helps save on electricity. To avoid chemicals, we recommend using beeswax or soywax as a base since they are both eco-friendly choices. We also recommend adding organic fragrances or essential oils for a complete, all-natural homemade candle. We've found some great options on Amazon.com and Michaels Craft Store.

To learn how to make your own hand poured candle, check out this step-by-step instruction guide.  

USE THEM AS STORAGE CONTAINERS

You can also use our glass, airtight jars for storage. After carefully cleaning and air drying them, you can store almost anything from make-up brushes to cooking spices or even small office supplies, like paperclips. Get creative!
