These days, there’s a strong campaign for protecting Mother Earth. There are a lot of groups that encourage recycling. Seeing that it’s for a good cause, we felt the urge to take part in this advocacy.

As our initial step, we decided to minimize the use of plastics. We opted to use eco-bags when doing groceries, we no longer use plastic straws, and we only buy drinks in glass bottles. Because of this, we started to accumulate empty bottles at home.

Our Pick
12pcs 100ml Small Glass Bottles with Cork Lids

Small glass bottles are made of high premium-quality clear glass, which is durable and reliable. The material of the cork lid is wooden and is not easy to drop residue that can be firmly plugged bottle mouth.

In support of the recycling campaign, we came to a decision to convert some of them into jars. Seeing the finished products is so fulfilling. I think it comes from knowing that we were able to do something good for the environment.

Use the jars to store candies, pasta, or many other small stuff.
