Jo’s 162-mile trek beats the weather
Yorkshire woman Jo Moseley has paddleboarded the width of the UK – on canals.
Here at Friends of Glass we are always happy to find out about little glass gems across the UK and our latest discovery is a brand new juice bar in Brighton called YOU JUICE.
What makes the YOUJUICE concept special and exciting is that all of their products are made using organic locally sourced ingredients and most importantly served in glass. As we all already know, glass is the most trusted and proven packaging for health, taste and the environment so the two are a match made in heaven.
Anita Drozd-Alkin, founder of You Juice said:
“Right from the beginning, I knew I wanted to help people discover the benefits of healthy eating so the focus had to be on offering excellent quality organic ingredients. With this in mind, it felt right the juices should be bottled in glass. I just don’t agree with making a beautiful healthy juice and putting it into a plastic bottle, it defeats the object. Also because of the nature of raw juice, which is very sensitive to oxygen and temperature, glass helps to keep the juice fresher for longer.
Our customers are very health conscious and love glass bottles. They also get very excited when they find out about our returns incentive – when 10 bottles are brought back they get a free bottle or smoothie. It helps reduce waste, keeps costs down and rewards customer loyalty – a win/win for everyone.”
So next time you are whipping together your favourite smoothie or milkshake, be inspired by Anita at You Juice and do the same by choosing glass:
1) Glass holds in freshness for longer and does not taint the taste of what it contains
2) Glass is the environmentally friendly, 100% reusable and recyclable choice
3) Glass is inert so there are no chemicals to leach into your healthy, delicious drink.
