We can use an old glass jar to make our own salt shaker

🌐 In today’s world, we often discard glass containers without a second thought. But glass still has a huge value. This value is recognized in recycling plants, which turn waste glass into new glass. But they are treasures even before recycling, as they are a great resource for do-it-yourself projects. 🍶For example, the humble salt shaker — it is an everyday item that is used around the globe and can easily be made from a glass container. So why not make one yourself instead of running to the shop to buy a new one? I can tell you, it is a great opportunity to save a few bucks! ♻️ And the value of trash isn’t just monetary. When we create something ourselves, we value it even more. So, I bet that you’ve never had a cooler, more beautiful salt shaker than the one you made yourself. 🌍 And if you want, you can even use it as a statement. As a commitment to sustainability, to resourcefulness, to caring well for our planet. By repurposing a glass container into a salt shaker, you breathe life into waste and turn it in a functional piece of art. A piece that tells a unique story — a story of transformation, creativity, and environmental consciousness. 😀 So, the next time you shake a bit of salt onto your meal, think about your salt shaker — YOUR salt shaker! ❓ Do you need help? Here you can download instructions to create your own salt shaker from an empty jar for a symbolic €1 here:
