Here’s Why Your Specialty Foods & Beverages Deserve Glass
Made from all-natural ingredients, glass containers are impermeable and transparent, 100% and endlessly recyclable, and are not harmful to oceans or marine life.
Here’s how glass containers tick all the boxes to keep you and your family healthy.
Glass is made from 100% natural raw materials—silica sand, soda ash, limestone plus recycled glass—so it’s naturally protective and nontoxic.
The ingredients that make up glass containers are locked in so they don’t migrate into hot or cold food and beverages. Glass is the only widely-used packaging material that is “generally recognized as safe” (GRAS) by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration.
Unlike other food and beverage packaging, glass is the only packaging material that doesn’t require a plastic or chemical liner, including BPA, that can migrate into food and beverages. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends glass packaging to lower kids’ exposure to. chemicals.
Glass is a safe choice for reuse and food storage.
A non-porous surface ensures glass doesn’t absorb food and germs. Glass also safeguards against moisture, oxygen and contaminant invasion, for stain and odor resistance.
Glass does not deteriorate, corrode or fade so it’s safe for use and reuse of hot foods or liquids.
You can store food and heat it up in the same glass container. Glass goes effortlessly from freezer to oven to table.
Glass can be safely washed in the dishwasher with no worries of scratching or warping the surface.
Glass is made largely of sand and other natural ingredients, so glass containers don’t compromise ocean health or marine life.
Choosing glass packaging helps reduce the 8 million metric tons of plastics headed into our streams, rivers and waterways each year.
Glass bottle can go from the recycling bin to a store shelf in as little as 30 days. Plus, recycling programs for glass bottles and jars are available to 81% of the U.S. population.
