5 ways to recycle your miron glass
Categories: Our ProductsDecember 15, 2014 | Posted by Mukti
If you think our new miron violet glass packaging is too pretty to toss into the recycling bin, you can recycle or upcycle it.
We’ve designed our labels to peel easily off the bottles and jars, leaving you with smooth black biophotonic glass (you can only see the violet shade when you hold it up to the light).
Once you've used up your lush Mukti Organics product, clean and sterilise your bottle or jar. Leave it to air dry outside in the sun and then use it as a:
We have 5 bottle sizes that make cute vases. The 200ml bottles (cleansing lotion) will hold a small bouquet of flowers, while the 100ml bottles (toner), the 50ml bottles (sunscreen), the 30ml bottles (serum) and 15ml bottles (eye gel) are perfect for small
arrangements of delicate flowers of a single stem.
2. Incense holder
The smaller bottles are best for holding your favourite scented incense sticks. Stand the bottle on a dish to catch the ash.
3. Candle holder
Our bottles can hold slim taper candles and dinner candles, like these non-toxic, smokeless candles from the Nimbin Candle Factory. Whether you choose white or all the colours of the rainbow, the black glass will provide a striking contrast.
4. Storage vessel for tea, herbs and spices
Miron glass containers preserve whatever is contained in them by preventing sunlight from entering. In one study, chives were kept in miron glass, amber glass and clear glass and exposed to the sun. After two months, the chives in the amber and clear glass were bleached white, while the chives in the miron glass were still fresh and green.
5. Gift jar
Fill one of our jars with something gourmet and delectable, tie a ribbon around it and give it to someone you love for Christmas. Try Fair Trade chocolate-coated coffee beans, dark-chocolate goji berries or festive Indian candied fennel seeds.
Did you know?
- Miron violet glass is known as biophotonic glass because it comes from the science of biophotonics, which studies how light particles are absorbed and emitted by living cells.
- The properties of miron glass prevent visible light passing through, with the exception of violet light and the spectral range of UV-A and infrared light. So miron glass containers preserve their contents by preventing photoaging.
- The violet light that penetrates the glass protects and improves the quality of ingredients, thus lengthening the durability and potency of the products.
- Miron glass is 100% recyclable.
Do you have any ideas about how to recycle your miron glass?

I was wondering what to do with mine as they are too nice to throw away or recycle... I just had a lightbulb moment when looking for kitchen & bathroom accessories... you can use them as soap/detergent dispensers! :D Just remove the label

Please direct me to literature that indicates how violet light "improves" the quality of ingredients, thank you.
