Repurpose, Reuse, Replenish: Celebrating Global Recycling Day with 99th Monkey

Posted by Nick Sheridan on

Every year, Global Recycling Day reminds us of the importance of responsible waste management and the power of giving materials a second life. At 99th Monkey, we're committed to doing our part for the environment, which starts with the very jar you hold your favourite nut butter in.

Why Glass? A Sustainable Choice for You and the Planet

Unlike plastic containers, our nut butters are housed in beautiful, 100% recyclable glass jars. Here's why glass is the clear winner for sustainability:

  • Eco-friendly: Glass is made from naturally occurring sand, making it a readily available and renewable resource.
  • Durable: Glass jars are incredibly strong and can be reused countless times without losing their integrity.
  • Recyclable: Glass is endlessly recyclable, meaning it can be crushed and repurposed into new glass products without sacrificing quality.
  • Safety: Glass is inert and doesn't leach chemicals into your food, ensuring the safety and purity of your 99th Monkey Nut Butter.

By choosing glass jars, we minimise our environmental footprint and contribute to a circular economy where materials are kept in use for as long as possible.

Beyond Recycling: Repurposing Your 99th Monkey Jar

While recycling is important, it's equally exciting to explore the creative potential of your empty 99th Monkey jar! Here are some inspiring ideas to repurpose your glass container:

  • Storage Savvy: Use your cleaned jars to store dry goods like spices, grains, coffee beans, or even homemade granola bars. They're also perfect for storing bathroom necessities like cotton swabs or makeup brushes.
  • Organised Oasis: Declutter your desk or craft area by storing pens, pencils, paperclips, or other small office supplies in your jars.
  • Travel-Sized Treats: Fill your smaller jars with carrot sticks, grapes, overnight oats, bliss balls or trail mixes for convenient on-the-go snacks.
  • Planting Powerhouse: Transform your jar into a beautiful mini planter! Fill it with potting soil and plant small succulents, herbs, or flowers for a touch of greenery on your windowsill.
  • Candle Charm: Remove all labels and residue, then use your jar to create your own unique candle.

These are just a few ideas to get you started! With a little creativity, your empty 99th Monkey jar can become a versatile and stylish addition to your home.

The Importance of Recycling:

Recycling is a crucial step in reducing landfill waste and conserving precious resources. Here are some compelling reasons to embrace a recycling-focused lifestyle:

  • Reduces Landfill Overflow: Landfills are rapidly reaching capacity, creating environmental and health concerns. Recycling diverts waste from landfills, extending their lifespan.
  • Conserves Natural Resources: Manufacturing new products often relies on extracting virgin materials like wood or plastic. Recycling existing materials reduces our reliance on these resources.
  • Saves Energy: Manufacturing new products from scratch is energy-intensive. Recycling requires less energy, contributing to a smaller carbon footprint.
