Reusing glass jars - Waste Waning Wednesday #11

When we first started our zero waste journey, we still discarded empty glass jars. After finishing a condiment or nut butter, we’d throw them in glass recycling bins. We had often heard other people who follow a zero waste lifestyle explain that they keep, and re-use, all glass jars they…

Waste Waning Wednesday #10

Three weeks ago, Jordy injured his leg. He was out on the island walking the dogs before sunrise. Mojo came running back from one of her solo adventures and made a miscalculated jump from a dune. She knocked into Jordy and as a result, his kneecap dislocated. Jordy’s knees aren’t…
