Waste is a huge issue. The Association of Items Container Conversion has a goal to get rid of plastic food packaging. Instead of having food packaged in plastic, or other wrapping that is not recyclable, we plan to make sure food items are packaged inside reusable containers such as mason jars or mini plastic boxes with lids. Plastic containers and mason jars will help reduce waste and it will make it easier for people to reuse their containers for other types of food storage.
Mason jars are good storage items for food and drinks. They can also be used as cups.
