Mason jar crafts come with endless possibilities. Reuse them for food storage or turn them into a beautiful new item that would make a great gift.
We are learning more and more about why we should avoid plastic. With this knowledge comes more glass in our homes. One kind of glass you likely end up with a lot of is mason jars.
While glass recycling is great not all towns offer it and it’s even better to reuse things. Glass is great for reusing because it doesn’t hold on to odors, stain, or break down over time.
Mason jar crafts are becoming very trendy and while you can buy new mason jars it’s even better to use ones you already have on hand. You can make some really cute crafts for yourself or gifts.
Benefits of Upcycling
Recycling is the process that breaks down products so they can be remade into newer consumer products. Many of these products, especially plastics, are of lesser quality than the original item.
Upcycling on the other hand is taking material and turning it into something of more value than the original product. Upcycling is also a great way to make art. This is a great way to extend the life of products and keep them out of our landfills.
Upcycling also requires a lot less energy and resources, in general, than recycling. It really is the best option when it comes to keeping products out of the trash.
