5 Reasons to Choose Glass Bottles Over Plastic

Glass is a trusted and proven packaging for food and drinks because:

It's better for your health 

Glass, unlike some plastic bottles, does not contain any harmful chemicals such as BPA, which is a strong endocrine disrupter.

It's better for the environment 

Glass is made from naturally abundant materials — primarily sand — and it is 100% recyclable and can be reused endlessly. Roughly 2.7 million tons of plastic are used each year worldwide for disposable drinking bottles. Less than 1% of all plastic is recycled, meaning 99% of plastics are incinerated or end up in a landfill. 

It tastes better

Plastic bottles absorb odors and impart various “flavors” into water, not to mention leeching chemicals. Glass seals in the purity of taste of the liquids.

It's easy to clean

Glass is much easier to clean than plastic because they are less likely to develop scratches and hold on to residue and odors. Small scratches, which plastic is known for, create minute spaces for bacteria to grow.

It's durable

Glass bottles are more durable than plastic, and can be cleaned and reused over and over again.
