HOW TO GET STARTED

Little plastic items have a finite lifespan. Ultimately, they wear out and end up in the trash and then landfills. Why start a bad movie when you know how it will end? Instead, buy fewer, better things. The artisanally made butter crock supports local small businesses and avoids the creation of new/more plastics.

EMBRACE

  1. These butter crocks will last a lifetime or be heirlooms
  2. Ceramic doesn't generate microplastics
  3. These crocks create simple yet reliable air-tight seals using water. As a result, they cut down on food waste.

AVOID PRODUCT TYPE

AVOID

  1. Little things add up. Plastic in contact with oily and fatty plastics can leach into food.
  2. Plastic dishes have a limited lifetime as open and closed events wear them out. Most of these butter dishes will last 3-5 years.
  3. Aesthetically, these dishes don't look great and do very little for the soul.
