You can lower the environmental impact that glass makes by buying less, shopping smarter, reusing more and recycling when and wherever possible.
Whether you’re heading out on a road trip or just doing the morning commute, bringing a drink in a reusable bottle helps cut down on glass waste.

    Anyone else have trouble washing out olive oil bottles (and sometimes salad dressing bottles) to recycle? I find that the labels are hard to remove, but because they are often greasy from oil down the side, they must be removed so the grease doesn’t ruin all the paper in the single stream recycling bin. Sometimes I end up throwing the bottle away if I just can’t get it clean enough. Hmmm, maybe I should start buying olive oil in tins, but those often have a plastic spout and need to be thoroughly cleaned as well. Oil’s a tough one.

    Forget soda all together and brew Kombucha at home, way better than store bought!

    I hope that Arkansas starts recycling glass soon.

    I reuse a lot of my glass containers. We do not have glass recycling in my area so I try to find uses for most of it and try not to buy it either if possible.
