We find that scooping out the last bit of coconut goodness from our jars is extremely satisfying... (A bamboo spoon works great for that, by the way!) But what should you do with the jar once it’s empty?
Why does Skinny & Co. use glass jars?
To begin, we want to explain this point. We want to make sure no harmful chemicals are ever present in our products. Because of this, we always package our coconut oil in high-quality glass jars, to help maintain and the ensure quality is up to Skinny & Co. standards.
That being said, throwing the glass away is an option once you’ve scooped out the last of your oil, but we prefer the multitude of uses our creative customers have come up with.
5 of our favorite ways to upcycle Skinny & Co. glass jars
Everything is cuter in tiny, decorative glass jars
Our 2 oz jars are great as decorative glass jars for storing small jewelry or your daily medications. Some people use them in the kitchen to keep spices fresh or in their living room as tea light holders.
Jars to keep bathrooms tidy
The 4 oz jar we use for packaging our products is low and wide, making it ideal for holding bathroom items such as bobby pins and hair ties. Some people even use them as glass storage jars to store their cotton-tipped swabs.
Grow herbs and spices
The 6 oz jar can be used to make your own DIY herb garden. Simply fill with soil, place your favorite herb seeds inside, water, and place them on your windowsill.
Chic pen holder
Maybe we’re biased, but we happen to think our 8.5 oz jar is probably much better looking than most pen holders. Put some sand in the bottom for a tropical vibe.
Be original with the original jar
The 16 oz jar is the original Skinny & Co. jar. We use it to make overnight oats, to hold cold beverages or smoothies, or as a vase to hold fresh flowers.
