WHY GLASS?

· Extensive heat – which is required for sterilization - does not harm glass containers or release toxins into the water.  Glass is the only manmade material that can withstand the high temperatures needed for sterilization.

· Glass is nonporous, impermeable, air-tight and inert material. This means there are no interactions between the glass packaging and products to affect the taste of beverages.  Different chemicals and harmful bacteria cannot leach to taint your food or drinks.

· Glass is the only packaging material certified generally “regarded as safe” by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration.

· Environment friendly and not harmful like plastic bottles.  Glass bottles have always been bisphenol-A (BPA) free. Hundreds of studies have linked the BPA chemical found in many plastics to cancer, diabetes, heart disease and other health problems.

· Glass bottles are made from natural, nontoxic raw materials such as silica, sand, soda ash, limestone… making them one of the most pure containers available.

· Glass bottles are 100% recyclable. Unlike plastic, glass does not require the use of petroleum in its manufacturing process.  A recycled glass container can go from a recycling bin to a store shelf in as little as 30 days. It’s a renewable resource that won’t clog landfills for years to come.
