Upcycle and Reuse Skinny & Co. Jars!

Upcycle and Reuse Skinny & Co. Jars!
Posted on

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? We've got a few ideas for you!

Why does Skinny & Co. use glass jars?

We guarantee no harmful chemicals are present in the ingredients of our products. Because of this, we package our coconut oil in high-quality glass jars, to maintain the integrity of our products and to ensure quality is up to Skinny & Co. standards.

That being said, recycling the glass is always an option once you’ve scooped out the last of your oil and cleaned the jar, but we also wanted to share the multitude of uses our creative customers have shared with us.

5 of our favorite ways to upcycle Skinny & Co. glass jars

Storing small items tiny, decorative glass jars

Our 2 oz jars are great as decorative glass jars for storing small items, such as jewelry, medications, spices, tea lights, buttons, and more!

You can find the 2oz jars as packaging for Skinny Coconut Oil, Oil Pulling, or Cleansing Balm. What is your favorite use for a 2 oz jar?

Jars to keep bathrooms tidy

The 4 oz jar is low and wide, making it ideal for holding bathroom items such as bobby pins, hair ties, and cotton-tipped swabs.

You can find the 4 oz jars as the packaging for our Raw Beauty Coconut Oil, Pure Baby, or Facial Sugar Scrub.

Grow herbs and spices

The 6 oz jar is tall enough to be used to make your own DIY herb garden. Simply fill with soil, place your favorite herb seeds inside, water, and place on your windowsill.

You can find the 6 oz jar as packaging for our Rose Jojoba, Lavender Almond, and Marula Argan Body Melts.

Chic pen holder

The tall, skinny shape of our 8 oz jar is perfect for holding pens and pencils. Decorate the jar and use as a cute gift for a teacher or coworker! 

You can find the 8.5 oz jar as Skinny Coconut Oil and as Peppermint Oil Pulling Oil

Be original with the original jar

The 16 oz jar is the original Skinny & Co. jar. Use it to make overnight oats, to hold cold beverages or smoothies, or as a vase to hold fresh flowers.

You can find the 16 oz jar as Skinny Coconut Oil or as Peppermint Oil Pulling Oil. Some people have even used this jar to make their own candles.
