HOW TO GET STARTED

Avoiding plastic where and when we can is important. Acrylic alternatives are not horrible. However, they will ultimately wear out and be disposed of. Glass is infinitely recyclable and will have a much lower long-term impact on the environment. It's a small transition but a worthwhile switch.

EMBRACE

  1. Made from infinitely recyclable material
  2. Will likely last as long as acrylic alternatives
  3. Has a great aesthetic that does not look cheap

AVOID PRODUCT TYPE

AVOID

  1. Will ultimately wear out and end up in landfill
  2. Generate microplastics when they are disposed of
  3. The aesthetic is not as attractive as glass
