Why we choose glass?
The benefits of glass packaging are clear: it’s sustainable, it’s inert, It’s 100% and infinitely recyclable, reusable and refillable; it’s safe to store food and drinks in; and it’s beautiful.
Plus it doesn't leach chemicals and endocrine disruptors in to your food, drink, or cosmetic products unlike plastic packaging.
Is glass really better?
Glass comes from nature.
Glass is made from naturally occurring ingredients abundant in nature. The alchemy of these ingredients result in one sole material. No other material or chemical layers are needed to complete it.
Glass is 100% recyclable and infinitely so. Glass is 100% recyclable and can be recycled endlessly with no loss in quality or purity. Glass recycling is a closed loop system, creating no additional waste or by-products. Glass is one of the very few examples where the same material can be recycled over and over again without loss of quality.
Glass containers can be reused: they can have up to 40 lives. Reusing glass bottles reduces overall impact and it increases the sustainable value of glass many times over. Returnable glass is a good alternative solution the industry can offer for specific market conditions.
Glass is good for consumers’ health. Glass is virtually inert and impermeable, making it the most stable of all packaging materials. There is no risk of harmful chemicals getting into the food or drinks that are packed in glass. No additional barriers or additives are needed. A glass bottle or jar is 100% pure glass.
If glass is so great why doesn't every company only use glass?
It's simple really, it comes down to cost. Glass is a bit more expensive, it requires more shipping protection and it weighs more which can increase costs too. At Moss + Pearl Soap Company we prioritize your health and sustainability over profit margins.
