Acquire a set of mason jars. This handy, multi-purpose item will serve you in various ways. For example, you can use them as a food storage container, when purchasing loose grains and cereals, as water glasses, or even as flower vases, depending on the dimensions of the jar. Take it a step further by saving your jars and other glass containers to be repurposed after you consumed the contents. They will function equally as well as mason jars.
Tea is a beverage that holds different values in different cultures. However, whether you drink it as a connoisseur, as a form of herbal medicine, or as part of your rich cultural history, you should be mindful of the way we prepare it. A tea press, or its less-space-consuming counterpart, the tea strainer, is not only an easy zero waste swap for tea bags, but it also opens the door to a more vibrant and flavourful drinking experience.
