HOW TO GET STARTED

Plastic containers usually have a short lifespan depending on the specific type of plastic they are made of. Some can last a long time like Tupperware whereas others last only about 6 months to a year. Storing food in plastic containers is a dicey proposition. Plastic can often leach into food when it's heated or if the food is oily or acidic. Best to avoid plastic when it comes to food storage and preparation. Tried and true ceramic and pottery can last decades and won't leach contaminants into food.

EMBRACE

  1. Replaceable natural rubber gasket means the container can be used for decades while maintaining an air-tight seal
  2. The high glaze interior means little leaching of contaminants into the coffee
  3. Aesthetically pleasing and feels substantial in the hand

AVOID PRODUCT TYPE

AVOID

  1. Plastic containers have a finite lifespan and don't endure dishwashers very well
  2. Once their useful life is over, these containers will end up in landfills or our waterways
  3. Some leaching of plastic may occur in coffee which is slightly acidic
