Easy Ways to Repurpose Your Shortbread Jars

Here at Found. Market we are always trying to come up with ways we can reduce our ecological footprint. Recycling and repurposing is encouraged, eco friendly materials are used, and overall we have a focus on limiting waste; however, running a business and reasonably meeting these goals can be tricky. We would like to invite shortbread lovers to join us in repurposing our shortbread jars for better use, rather than simply recycling them. Our customers are the most creative ones out there, and we know there are endless ways to reuse these jars that we haven’t heard of yet - tag us on social media to share and inspire others with your favorite repurposing tips. Below are some of our favorites:
