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
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.
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.

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!

2019 was a big year for me... I got engaged to the love of my life, Matt, and we married at the end of November. It was the most beautiful, special day of our lives, surrounded by the people we love.
In the days after the wedding an article was being shared on Facebook about the significance of our special day. Happily indulging in my wedded bliss, I hadn't been on social media and didn't see the article until my friend sent it to me directly. I was blown away.
The article was written by Ellen Futterman, a woman who happened to be vacationing at the same place and same time that Matt and I were getting married. She beautifully and eloquently captured the spirit of our celebration. It's a special piece that I will cherish forever.
