HOW TO GET STARTED

  1. Determine your food storage needs - especially for oils, juices, beverages, nut milk
  2. Target food storage needs that likely exceed multiple large mason jars - you can use mason jars to store liquids, but they are not as easy to drink from or pour from directly
  3. Find storage space for your unused swing-top bottles
  4. Grab a small stainless steel funnel set to help pour liquids into your bottles
  5. Use a grease pencil to label bottle contents and storage date

EMBRACE

  1. Won't emit microplastics when disposed of
  2. Won't leach plastics into stored beverages (especially oils or heated liquids)
  3. Easy to open lids which makes access ideal compared to screw tops


AVOID PRODUCT TYPE

Plastic beverage storage bottle


AVOID

  1. Will inevitably end up in landfill at end of life
  2. Will leach plastic into certain foods - especially oils if they are stored in the bottles
  3. Will develop cracks and stains over a time-limited lifespan


Noteworthy Product Attributes

The bottles will likely last years depending on how they are used. Gaskets can be replaced to extend the bottle's lifespan. Check to see if there are chips around the opening/rim of the bottle to determine if they have reached the end of life.
