At My Organic Juice we use glass bottles to benefit both our client’s health, taste, and the environment.
Here are some of the benefits of using glass bottles:
- Easier to clean
- Recyclable – At least 80% of glass is recovered and made into new glass products. As consumers, we don’t recycle enough of our plastic bottles; and plastic bottles that are not recycled can contribute to GHG “greenhouse gas emissions” that affect the health of the environment.
o Conservation – millions of barrels of oil are used every year to create plastic bottles
o Production of plastic bottles omits toxins into the air, uses energy and uses water.
- Taste – Plastic, aluminum and stainless steel bottles can alter the taste of the liquid it comes in contact with. Glass is nonporous and impermeable and will give you a clean, pure taste because it doesn’t break down or leach chemicals into the product its holding.
- Glass is free from BPA (bisphenol A), a harmful chemical that mimics estrogen in the body, used to manufacture polycarbonate plastics, epoxy resins, and some food packaging. BPA may leach into plastic containers when exposed to heat from simply lying around in a heated area or when exposed to heat when placed in a dishwasher, or put into a microwave. BPA may lead to developmental hormonal disruptions in young children
PET, a thermoplastic polymer resin of the polyester family, is another material used to manufacturer plastic bottles and other food containers. Antimony is a compound found in PET plastic bottles that has been documented as causing dizziness and depression in small doses. PET has also been documented as causing nausea, vomiting and even death in larger doses. And German researchers conclude that if you drink water or other liquids from plastic bottles manufactured from PET, you have a high probability of drinking estrogenic compounds.
