Okay, I agree with Chaya that these are brilliant.

Modern Harvest canning jar labels that shrink wrap on, with area on back to show date canned/made and opened. Love them.

Ha, ha! Good point, Rufus! Plastic normally makes me cringe, but is it worse than label glue?

I had similar thoughts as I posted this, but I think it's a brick at a time, shifting to a healthier way. Glass canning jars full of home-canned goodness are far better than store-bought tins. There is a spectrum, yes?

Would the Fido jars with rubber seals work in HUSP? What kind of labeling would be used - Stockmar Beeswax crayons (or similar)? Lots of questions still. It's not completely defined yet and that's okay.



Btw, I do love, love Stockmar and other Waldorf-style art supplies. Modeling beeswax can be pure joy.



And now I've hijacked my own thread. Ha.

Since the flats aren't supposed to be reused I write on those with a permanent marker. I write on the glass top of my weck jars and it washes off easily for the next use.

Those are pretty but For me, plastic is about as bad as styrofoam
 
I have a knack for fixing things like this ... um ... sorry ... here is a concilitory tiny ad:
