Why Glass?

Glass is made from natural raw material which is advantageous to our health since glass has an outstanding barrier that fights and protects against outside influences. Glass is non-porous and impermeable.

Glass has the capability to withstand extreme heat and cold, this enables glass to prevent chemicals from leaking into the contents it holds while maintaining its freshness and durability. Whereas PET bottles that are exposed to over 40C will start to leach with the contents.

Glass helps to maintain the aroma, flavor and freshness of food and does not negatively affect its contents in anyway. It is perfect for the long term preservation of food in its original state.

A used glass bottle can always be recycled into a new one because glass is 100% recyclable. Every ton of glass that is recycled saves more than a ton of the raw materials needed to create new glass. This proves that glass is very respectful of our environment, reducing landfills and saves energy.
