Up-cycled glass jars
Ugly Duckling is a new brand of up-cycled products designed to get more out of materials that would otherwise be disposed of. Glass jars are often used as disposable food packaging and contrary to popular belief, are less often recycled than thrown in the landfill. The rising costs of sorting and the energy required to re-process and melt them down to new raw material have rendered them one of the most under-appreciated, down-cycled materials available.
Ugly Duckling glass containers breathe new life into these inconspicuously precious objects. By using very little energy in stripping them off their labels and making new lids, they become way more valuable than their original purpose.
