Re: recycled packaging?

Yes, I would buy a product in a re-purposed jar! Bonus points for recycled or re-purposed shipping packaging as well!

I've received good feedback from customers because I shipped in inside out cereal boxes... They loved that they weren't the only ones who were commited to giving something one more use before throwing it out

Yes, BUT It's glass, and there for easily sterilized.

OP, I think it's a FANTASTIC idea! And I loved what the other Momma said about playing up the fact that you're recycling jars, especially if they're uniform in size, and dressed up

Re: recycled packaging?

Despite knowing that there's probably nothing gross on it after it's been cleaned and sterilized, I have to be honest and say that I wouldn't buy it. Not for hygiene products at least (but candles in repurposed jars, yes!). I am totally down with repurposed shipping packaging, though.

We have a severe allergy here. Unless i was the one sterilizing the jar, i wouldnt risk it. Before dd had the allergy it wouldnt have bothered me. N

Op can you maybe put in you listing a new jar for $1 more or whatever? So they can choose? Or make listings for each and see what sells better.
