Re-usable Vessels

Hey, whatever happened to refillable containers? Let's go back to them! Imagine going to the grocery store with a collection of your own, fun, hip, containers and refilling your moo-juice, OJ, wine, salad dressing, peanut butter, olive oil, laundry detergent, etc, etc.

Am I crazy? Lately I have been feeling like such a jerk throwing away perfectly good single-use containers. Oh I recycle them, but that takes so much energy! To collect, transport, melt down, reform, transport, fill, transport again....
I want to buy really fun, cool ones and take them in to get filled. Could save me money and will DEFINITELY save energy! Hassle? Maybe some - but totally totally worth it from a sustainability point of view.

  1. That is SO weird that you wrote this, I was just thinking this exact thing while pouring out the last few drops of laundry detergent! WHY is this not a normal practice?
