More people than ever are recycling and we couldn’t be happier – the glass industry love to use recycled glass when they manufacture new containers but not all types of glass can be used in production.

Here’s 5 reasons to choose glass when you buy milk:
Often milk travels great distances before it gets processed into the final product. Unlike milk in glass bottles, which comes from local farms and can be from the cow to your table in as little as 24 hours. This quick turnaround greatly increases the shelf life. Milk in glass bottles is left closer to its original state than milk in other packaging. Due to the less processed nature of the milk, more enzymes remain. This makes it easier to digest, and many people with milk intolerances can drink milk in glass bottles.
Glass bottles keep milk cold longer. Colder milk is tastier milk.
Glass dairy containers are good for the environment because glass is one of the most recyclable materials you can use. It’s actually 100% recyclable and it can be recycled endlessly – without loss in quality or purity – into new glass bottles or jars. Additionally, the more recycled glass we use to make new glass, the less raw materials the industry needs to use to produce glass.
Glass bottles don’t transfer a foreign scent and taste into the milk, the way paper or plastic containers do. Drinking milk from glass bottles is the only way to get that delicious true milk taste. The tastier the milk, the more likely kids will drink it. Which is a win for parents everywhere.
85% of Europeans would recommend glass packaging to their friends and family. You should, too.
Choose glass. Recycle glass. Happy Recycle Week!
