Glass Jars or Plastic Containers, Which is The Better Choice?

Glass jars

Glass jars are an excellent solution for storing numerous products. Their many benefits include resistance and being highly hygienic due to no scent being held inside with appropriate lid placement; making this the ideal way to preserve organic products.

Plastic is an inert material, meaning when exposed to chemicals or corrosives it does not become altered or alter its composition or flavor; similarly when it comes to medicines or food it does not change composition or taste. On top of all that it's an eco-friendly container which can be reused with proper cleaning procedures before being recycled afterwards.

However, purchasing glass jars does have its drawbacks that should be taken into consideration by buyers; firstly the cost is much higher than plastic containers and requires much greater investments not only financially but also physically in terms of labor force use, transportation costs and fuel usage costs as well as potential accidents that might cause these to shatter.

Plastic containers

Plastic containers provide an effective alternative to glass jars; they are resistant to impacts and chemicals or corrosives and yet cost much less. Furthermore, there is an array of plastic resin options such as PET or HDPE available depending on what needs packing.

Plastic resin containers are lightweight and versatile packaging materials that do not alter the properties of packaged products, while also being highly recyclable. Therefore, with proper treatment, used containers will eventually return into production chain to be reused again, helping to decrease our ecological footprint in various ecosystems.
