Have you ever said to yourself, "I'm never going to use that again? " Well, here are a few ways that you can upcycle empty jars in honor of Earth Day.

5 ways to Upcycle your empty jars 

1) Plant Succulents – With your smaller empty jars, use a bottle brush to get all the leftover oils and ingredients left behind from what was previously in the bottle. Be sure to cleanse the bottle thoroughly and let dry.

place a one-half inch or less layer of gravel or tiny pebbles at the bottom of each jar.

pour equal portions of potting soil and sand into a bowl.


2) Use them to store vitamins – Did you finish up your vitamin gummies, and someone gave you vitamins to try that's highly recommended? Use one of your smallest containers to store them in. 

3) Travel size minis – Are you going on a trip? And already running around like a chicken with your head cut off? Well, if you're like me and have an extra container lying around somewhere, pour your shampoos, conditioner, and body washes to-go. 

4) Create a vase – The thing I love about mason jars you can use them in a variety of ways. If you have a craft or spray paint around your house, you can decorate the jar and fill it with flowers. Then use it as a centerpiece or sit it on your coffee table.  

5) An Organizer – Everybody wasn't blessed with a lot of pantry space in their kitchen if you've been looking for a way to maximize your area, you can redo your pantry and store lentils, rice, and other things in jars.
