What is "show your jugs?"

Vermont Chalky Paint's mission was to give back from Day 1. We house our paint in 1/2 pint jugs that are repurposed into these decorative jug mini lamps. A portion of proceeds help cancer patient support groups and other charities in the communities we serve.

My mom died of breast cancer when I was 20. She never saw me get married, have my son or hit any of those milestones you wish your Mom could see. I created Show Your Jugs as a way for me to know she's still with me, she's still giving back and we're both making this world a little lighter. Thank you for Lighting Up My Life, Mom.
