Plastic VS Glass

The Benefits of Glass over Plastic, Why You Should Avoid Eating Foods from Cans, and the Advantages of Stainless Steel Cups

When it comes to choosing the materials we use in our daily lives, it's important to consider the impact they have on our health and the environment. One common material that many of us use on a regular basis is plastic. From plastic water bottles to plastic Tupperware, it's hard to avoid this material in today's society. However, there are significant reasons why glass is a better alternative to plastic.

Glass is a non-toxic and environmentally friendly material that is 100% recyclable. Unlike plastic, glass does not contain harmful chemicals such as BPA that can leach into our food and drinks. Additionally, glass is durable, long-lasting, and can be reused multiple times without deteriorating. Not only does using glass reduce our exposure to harmful toxins, but it also helps to reduce our overall plastic consumption and its negative impact on the environment.

In addition to choosing glass over plastic, it's also important to be mindful of the foods we consume that come in cans. Canned foods are often lined with a resin that contains BPA, a chemical linked to various health issues such as hormone disruption and cancer. Opting for fresh or minimally processed foods over canned products can help to reduce our exposure to these harmful chemicals and promote better overall health.

When it comes to choosing drinkware, stainless steel cups are a great alternative to plastic and can also offer numerous benefits. Stainless steel is durable, resistant to corrosion, and does not leach chemicals into our beverages like plastic can. Additionally, stainless steel cups are easy to clean, reusable, and can last for years, making them a sustainable choice for both our health and the environment.

So, next time you reach for a plastic water bottle or canned food item, consider the alternatives available to you. By making small changes in the materials we use and the foods we consume, we can take steps towards a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle. Let's raise a toast to glass, fresh foods, and stainless steel cups for a better and brighter future.

Do you drink out of plastic very often? Do you use baggies and plastic Tupperware? Do you eat foods that come in cans? Do you use glass jars or stainless steel water cups?

Let's protect our health!
