5 Tips on Reusing LeneNicole’s Glass Jars

Do you still remember your first LeneNicole candle? What convinced you to order from us? Was it the scents you haven’t tried in other brands or the story behind how we started? Or, perhaps, was it because of the sleek containers?

LeneNicole’s soy-based candles are placed in glass jars produced from recycled materials. By using glass jars, we reduce the amount of waste in landfills, lower air pollution by 20%, and lower water pollution by 50%.

This kind of impact aligns with LeneNicole’s long-term goals of sustainability and environmental protection. 

This blog post will give you practical tips on the five different ways you can reuse your glass jar.

Top 5 Ways to Reuse Your Candle Jars

Reusing and recycling product packages has been around for quite some time. However, it’s become more popular in recent years when people have become increasingly aware of the damages that our planet is suffering from.

If you have your LeneNicole jars store somewhere in your cabinets, it’s time to give them a new purpose. 

As cosmetic tool storage

Are you always searching for your tweezers, razors or nail clippers?  Our glass jars can serve as a minimalistic storage for your cosmetic tools. It’s also properly sized so it doesn’t take up too much space in your vanity or dresser. 

If you want to spice it up, you may try experimenting with decorating the glass jar using beads, small gems or stones. Since the jar’s base color is black, adding a splash of decoration will help brighten it up. 

As pen holder

No need to splurge on plastic pen holders. Save on money and help save the Earth by using the glass jar as a pen holder. If you have two or more LeneNicole glass jars, you may glue the glass jars together that way, you can store more pens and have each jar labeled.

One fun thing about glueing the jars together is you can arrange them in a linear or triangular pattern. 

As a dainty plant pot

You can start a herb garden with LeneNicole’s glass jars! After washing and drying your jars, make a drainage hole at the bottom. Then put your non-biodegradable drainage material on top. Make your drainage material thick enough that the roots will not directly access the excess water.

Be careful when trying to grow herbs using glass jars. Water cannot quickly evaporate in glass containers; therefore, your herbs need less watering than the ones planted in conventional pots. 

As a knick-knack jar

If you are a collector of cute and quirky things, you might want a safe place to store unique items. You can also coat the inside of your glass jar with a velvet cloth or any soft cloth to add extra protection to your knick-knacks.

As an affirmation message container

A true LeneNicole girly practices her affirmations daily. LeneNicole’s magic does not end when our candles retire. The glass jars that once held the candles can now be used to store the affirmation messages that will help you start your day right. 

On top of that, while you are doing your affirmation ritual, you also light your new LeneNicole candle. Can it get better than that?! Mood and mind uplifted!

Importance of Reusing Glass Jars


Recycling undoubtedly benefits the environment, but reusing takes sustainability to a new level. By giving your LeneNicole glass jars a second life, you contribute to reducing waste and conserving resources.

Reusing glass jars saves energy and resources that would otherwise be required to produce new containers. This, in turn, reduces greenhouse gas emissions and lessens the burden on landfills. Reusing glass jars also helps minimize the demand for new raw materials, essential for preserving natural resources like sand, soda ash, and limestone used in glass production.

Furthermore, using glass jars for multiple purposes promotes a circular economy, where items are kept in use for as long as possible. By doing so, we can move away from the linear "take, make, dispose" model and towards a more sustainable way of living.


At LeneNicole, we strive to create products that bring joy and relaxation to your life and contribute to a healthier planet. Our commitment to sustainability is reflected in using recycled glass jars for our candles. By reusing these jars creatively, you extend their lifespan and play a part in reducing waste.

Next time you finish one of our delightful candles, consider how to repurpose the glass jar instead of discarding it. From cosmetic tool storage to a dainty plant pot, there are countless possibilities to give your LeneNicole jar a new purpose.

Join us in the journey towards a greener future, and let's positively impact the environment together. Together, we can create a world where sustainability and beauty coexist harmoniously.
