I emptied a container of cinnamon last night. The jar is #5 plastic, recyclable through Gimme 5. The lid can be taken to Aveda. It leaves me with a larger glass jar of cinnamon that can be refilled when empty.
Do you know of good sources for loose bulk spices in NYC? Porto Rico Importing has a few things (including cinnamon), but from what I recall the selection is limited. The bulk section at Fairway, the best bulk section I've come across in NYC, does not have spices. I haven't been in Kalustayan's recently. Kalustayan's is the spice mecca of NYC. I don't recall seeing loose spices there, but it is worth checking. Chinatown probably has sources as well.
