Here’s a fave of ours. Use the liquid from your can of chickpeas or your leftover boilwater.

Vegan Mayo:
•3/4 cups of Chickpea water(Aquafaba)
•1 tablespoon lemon juice
•1 tablespoon chickpeas 
•1 tablespoon Dijon Mustard 
•1 pinch of salt (💡to acheive an “eggy” flavour, try Kala Namak Salt )
• 1 3/4 cups of a mild oil
 
 🥄🥄🥄
Reserve chickpea water.
Boil on medium heat for 5 mins.
Blend with chickpeas, lemon juice, mustard, salt and oil, until mixture thickens. Let it cool.
🫙Transfer to an airtight jar. Will last in refrigerator for 1 week.

💡If mixture does not thicken, blend in more oil or simmer mixture for a couple minutes more.

✨a crowd favourite and an excellent plastic-free way to filter your water!
•
🏕Perfect for camping, the cottage or in your home-office water carafe.
 •
Made in the Kishu region in Japan, Binchotan Charcoal (sustainably harvested branches of Japanese Oak) absorbs impurities from water, while releasing natural minerals into it – resulting in pure, great tasting water.
•
The charcoal is activated through extremely high temperatures in a kiln and then a rapid cooling process.
 •
Binchotan charcoal has an alkaline effect, softening and improving the taste of your water.
 •
The charcoal can be re-used as water filter for up to 3-4 months.
🌱After that, it can be easily recycled as a deodorizer or broken and placed into your garden, providing nutrients and creating extra pockets of water and air in the soil.

🤔Some of our customers have asked us how to combine some of our bulk cleaning powders.
🔥Here’s a quick recipe for your automatic dishwasher that will make your dishes sparkle and shine! 
*
•Citric Acid is great for removing calcium scale
•Borax deodorizes and disinfects.
•Washing soda is a great stain remover and water softener.
•Rock Salt helps to soften water and reduce lime scale build-up.

*🥄Add one tablespoon of your mix into soap dispenser tray

💡Tip: Diluted 12% vinegar, is a great eco friendly rinse agent

Cotton mesh produce bags are an excellent #plasticfree alternative that are compact, useful and cost-effective. 

🍑Store thicker skinned fruits and veggies like carrots, peaches, apples and oranges in a cotton mesh produce bag in the refrigerator.

🧅 Produce like onions, tomatoes, potatoes and garlic thrive in a well-ventilated environment. Hang your drawstring mesh bag in a cool, dark spot or place in a dark corner on your countertop.

🥬 Leafy greens like lettuce, kale and cilantro prefer a more damp environment. Instead of a damp paper towel, moisten the cotton mesh bag. The dampened fabric will keep your produce crisp and fresh longer.

🥑 If you don’t have a paper bag, store your delicate produce like avocados, mushrooms and berries in our cotton mesh bag, in your crisper.

💡Tip: To ensure you are always prepared, keep a cotton mesh produce bag at your front door, in your car or in your shoulder bag.

More than 300,000,000 tons of plastic are produced every year for a variety of uses( IUCN 2021).

Plastic is a problem because every single piece of it, that has ever been produced is still around to this day.

Plastic does not decompose in the environment naturally. Instead it is burned, and this releases methane and carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, contributing to the greenhouse effect.

Plastic pollution has widespread effects such as human and marine species health, safety and security, contributing to climate change.

The Green Jar takes climate action seriously, that’s why we’re taking part in Plastic Free July with Random Acts of Green this summer. 

Plastic free July is to challenge people about their single-use plastic consumption and encourage sustainable habits.

This pledge demonstrates our commitment to a more sustainable future.

Will you take this pledge with us?

Summer Solstice, when the sun is directly over the Tropic of Cancer, "...marks the official beginning of summer in the Northern Hemisphere, occurring when Earth arrives at the point in its orbit where the North Pole is at its maximum tilt (about 23.5 degrees) toward the Sun, resulting in the longest day and shortest night of the calendar year. (By longest “day,” we mean the longest period of sunlight hours.) On the day of the June solstice, the Northern Hemisphere receives sunlight at the most direct angle of the year. 
In the Southern Hemisphere, the June solstice marks the beginning of winter. "

We hope you are celebrating today. Here are some solstice ideas:
-Celebrate (safely) with a bonfire
-Take a walk in nature
-Set positive intentions for the rest of the year
-Soak in some Vitamin D and give thanks to the sun's energy
-Plant food for nourishment

How are you celebrating?
