5 Ways to Reuse your Jai Juice Bottles
Chances are if you’re a Jai Juice junky you’ve developed quite the stock pile of empty bottles. I know you probably have good intentions of returning the bottles back to Jai Juice for that fifty cents off, but let’s face it sometimes life gets in the way. Well juice junky, here are 5 ways to reuse your Jai Juice bottles and if you’re not a juice junky these are some great ways to use mason and other jars and cut down on the plastic in your life.
Water bottle. We all know that plastic is incredibly harmful to the environment, so let’s do one better than recycling. Stop using plastic… as much as you can. Did you know that in the United States alone we use 50 billion water bottles a year? That’s 1500 bottles every second! Sadly, only 38% of those get recycled. Instead of buying bottled water, bottle your own. Refill your Jai bottles with water filtered from home and stock your fridge with them. It’s water ready for your on-the-go needs but minus the harmful BPAs and hazard to our planet.
Flower vase. This one is pretty obvious, but have you done it? Fresh flowers in your house can really liven up an area. If you find yourself too busy to sit down and eat, try putting fresh flowers on your table. I find that a beautiful table will invite you in and you’ll find yourself more likely to sit down and eat there. Just arrange a few fresh cut flowers in the glass. You don’t need many just a few will do the trick. Tip: add a splash of vodka to keep your flowers from wilting quickly.
Grow green onions. Keep those farmer’s market fresh green onions going all through winter. Let’s be honest, most of us don’t use the whole bunch anyway, so this is a really great way to get the full use out of your green onions instead of using one and tossing the rest when they go bad in a week. Just fill the glass with about an inch of water. Put your green onions in and watch them grow. You’ll just need to add water periodically.
Store dry ingredients. If you’re always checking out what’s at the bulk section and trying new grains, nuts and seeds, this is a great way to store your stuff rather than having plastic bags filled with miscellaneous stuff in your cupboards. (Again ditch the plastic!) Easy to see and easy to use. Here I have oats and pecans stored in my jars.
Make your own smoothie. Chances are if you’re a juice junky, you’re also whipping up your own green concoctions at home. Make one the night before a busy day and store in a Jai glass bottle.
Reusing materials or upcycling is not only trendy but it’s good for our planet and helps us to pinch a few pennies. Make us proud and reuse your Jai Juice bottles! Then tell us about it! What ways have you found to reuse your juice bottles?
