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.


  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.



  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.
