The benefits of glass versus plastic bottles
Aside from the health benefits, glass is easier to clean than plastic and can be sterilised very quickly in boiling water – a huge benefit when thinking about baby bottles in particular. Glass bottles last a lot longer than plastic alternatives and are also easily recyclable. In general, glass is considered a better material for the environment and kinder to our bodies too. Many of our Lifefactory products (a new arrival for us here at Planet Organic) are made from soda lime or borosilicate glass, which is a lot lighter and easier to transport than you might first think. There can be a worry on the weight of carrying a glass bottle around, but with this range, our buying team were pleasantly surprised and didn’t see this as a negative at all.
So, fast forward to the present day, and the clever people at ‘Lifefactory ‘are bringing back safe-use glass bottles to the shop-floor, thanks to their distinctive silicon wrap that not only looks gorgeous, but is also pretty practical in protecting your bottle from breaking. Often referred to as the safe, simple and smart drinkware collection, this forward thinking design co. from sunny California pride themselves on producing a responsibly sourced range that is functional, re-useable and looks pretty great too.
