"Re-Use" is a notch up from recycle. We love to recycle whenever we can. Bloating our land fills, oceans, and earth's atmosphere with in-digestible plastics and other materials is a slow, painful death for our planet.
We us a thermal process to preserve our fruit spreads in "reusable" glass mug jars. Once the yummy fruit spreads have passed your pallet the mugs are intended to be "repurposed" for drinking glass. Are you old enough to remember your mother's Welch's Jelly Jars?
And if your Barton Creek Crossing Mug becomes cracked or chipped .. the glass is recyclable!
