HOW TO GET STARTED

Most plastic food storage containers have a limited lifespan and leach plastic into stored food. Glass alternatives like high-quality Pyrex will last decades with proper care. Lids may get lost or worn out, but these can be easily replaced with the core storage container having a long service life compared to plastic alternatives where replacement lids are hard to find resulting in the whole storage container ending up in the trash.

EMBRACE

  1. Glass storage won't leach plastic or other substances into stored food
  2. The glass itself is infinitely recyclable. The plastic lids are an issue but can be replaced with silicone after-market options
  3. Pyrex glass is heavy, durable, and non-absorbant and will outlast plastic alternatives

Noteworthy Product Attributes

Will likely last a lifetime. The only issue is the plastic lid but aftermarket silicone alternatives exist that are more environmentally friendly than plastc.

AVOID PRODUCT TYPE

AVOID

  1. Plastic food storage just seems like a generally bad idea. Oily foods and warm foods tend to leach plastic.
  2. High-quality plastic storage containers will have a decent lifespan, but they will eventually stain and retain orders and end up in the trash
  3. Rarely are these plastic materials recycled so these plastic items will end up in our landfills and even potentially our waterways.
