HOW TO GET STARTED

Moving from plastic to glass for food storage may seem like a small step. However, plastic containers eventually wear out and when they are no longer useful there is little chance they will be recycled. They will end up in our landfills or waterways. Glass has none of these issues and if treated well can last generations.

EMBRACE

  1. Can last 10-13 years if canning and many decades under normal use
  2. Does not leach any chemicals into your food
  3. Is infinitely recyclable with the glass and metal being completely reusable and the natural rubber gasket being completely biodegradable

Noteworthy Product Attributes

  1. Heavy glass construction that is durable
  2. Metal fittings that are infinitely recyclable just like glass
  3. A natural rubber gasket that can be replaced when it is worn out
  4. A brand that has been around for decades and is likely to be around for many more
  5. A fully detachable lid that can be cleaned separately unlike many other top jars

AVOID PRODUCT TYPE

AVOID

  1. Most plastic food storage containers last 6 to 12 months
  2. Heating plastic containers or putting oily/fatty foods can lead to plastic leaching into your food
  3. Most of these containers can be downcycled at best and the majority just end up in landfill
