Brewing your own kombucha is a fun way to save money and get the exact flavor and consistency you want. If you don’t already know how to brew your own, please see my other post here. Part of the brewing process is bottling. A great way to cut back on your waste and decrease consumer demand is to reuse your old kombucha bottles. I usually drink GTs when we are out of the good stuff at home. Their bottles are perfect for brewing, and they add that nice carbonation that we all love about kombucha.
Below is a video I made to show you how quick and painless it can be to peel those labels off of your bottles. Think of all of the possibilities there are for reuse:
- Bottling any drink (think club soda and lime on a hot summer day)
- Storing any nuts, seeds, coffee beans, or any other dried food
- Decorations (I’m thinking chalkboard paint and fun stencils)
- Bringing a homemade drink with you to work
- A water bottle at work (no plastic here, thank you- just leave the lid off)
- A gift for a friend who is also brewing his or her own kombucha
- A very unique mixed-drink glass
- A cute pencil holder (put a ribbon around the rim, voila!)
- Massive spice rack
- I could go on, the possibilities are endless
If peeling the labels off your own bottles isn’t your thing, you can always order some bottles from amazon. I’ve never tried these, but they seem like they would work great.
