Yet switching from plastic containers to glass is becoming more popular in recent years, as consumers become more aware of environmentally-friendly packaging, and companies rediscover the benefits of glass. Here, we’ll explore the growing popularity and benefits of glass bottle packaging, including safety, sustainability and image.
Safety. Glass is made from all-natural raw materials. Other packaging materials, such as PVC, can have negative effects on the health of humans and the environment. Glass is the only packaging material that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration labels as GRAS: “Generally Recognized as Safe.” Without the addition of chemicals during production, glass containers can effectively protect foods and beverages while preserving the products’ taste and maintaining purity.
Sustainability. Glass is a 100% recyclable, sustainable mono-material (meaning that is not composed of various materials) that can be recycled continuously without losing its purity or quality. Recycled glass containers can be made into new glass bottles, saving energy and raw materials. Other uses for recycled glass include landscaping, countertops, flooring, concrete pavement and tiles.
Image: Glass has a shelf impact unlike any other packaging material, with clarity, shape and texture that cannot be matched by plastics or cardboard. The transparency of glass allows for a clear showcase of the product, while the material’s strength contributes to its premium appearance.
