In this post we feature glass containers that are manufactured here in the USA. This is not only to support local products but also to ensure that what you purchase is safe and high quality.
Glass is inert; it doesn’t absorb odors nor does it leach anything into the container contents. It’s recyclable or reusable indefinitely, can be safely heated to high temps, does not harm the environment, and is nicer looking than plastic.
Plastic is cheap, light, and shatterproof. But it’s plastic. It scratches, can leach toxic chemicals into your food, warps if heated too much, and according to the data is more often than not bound for a landfill whether or not you put it in the recycling bin. See our other posts for the supporting data.
Whether for looks, safety, or practicality, these USA-made glass food containers are worth considering.
