Alexa, play ‘Heart of Glass’

Glass has our heart. Sleek, sustainable and super easy to store in kitchens, bathrooms and more! Glass jars and bottles make great storage containers for food as unlike plastic, they have a non-porous surface meaning they don’t absorb. Glass can also withstand high temperatures without melting or breaking, meaning you can get them squeaky clean without fear of them falling victim to your dishwasher and use them again, and again, and again. 

Best of all, you can often reuse glass containers from existing products, meaning your new plastic-free storage solution could very well be free. And once all is said and done, you can recycle your broken or worn glass containers with ease.
