Origin Story: The glass jar buy back program began as an idea from one of the Diffvelopment cohort members of 2022. I thought the idea was amazing, however my immediate concern was "is receiving used jars sanitary?"
Many of our products (past and present) have been packaged and prepared with an eco-friendly approach in mind. Once upon a time, we provided compostable labels derived from sugar-cane. Most of are containers are glass and tin based material and a recycle program made the most sense.
With fears surrounding Covid., the various variants, and general sanitation concerns cleanliness has always been our top priority.
After conducting thorough research our solution was a solution (or tablet) called Steramine."Steramine is a powerful formula used in either a soaking method for dishes, glasses, utensils, and other small items, or in spray applications for sanitizing large surfaces like countertops, sinks, processing equipment, refrigerators, and other non-porous surfaces that frequently come in contact with food."
Each jar is sanitized and sterilized through the use of Steramine Quaternary Sanitizing Tablets. The recycled jars are only provided to customers that opt-in to receive them during the check-out process. We respect your right to choose and we understand that some people would prefer a fresh jar.
We want to do our part to reduce, reuse, and recycle. As a customer, you have the option to join us and earn a few bucks.
How does it work?
You ship your jars to:
500 Westgate Drive #1064
Brockton, MA 02301
With the full name and email address associated with your previous order(s). Once the jar(s) are collected and inspected you will receive an email with a coupon for $5 per jar retrieved.
Sounds attainable! The glass jar buy back program began as an idea and through an amazing solution (no pun intended) we are able to do our part to help our planet!
