What if we told you that replacing that disposable bottle that you use daily with a portable glass water bottle, you could eliminate the eight million metric tons of plastic waste that end up in landfills and oceans each year. Your ecological footprint on this planet is greater than you may think and we at Glasstic want to make sure we are reducing our impact to create a sustainable and healthy environment for future generations to come.
Minimizing our impact on this planet is not as difficult as you may think. With a few simple steps, you can make a difference and help save our planet.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Many of our lifestyles have become custom to buying things we don’t need, using wasteful materials and packaging, and neglecting to reuse objects and simply throwing them away. With Glasstic, our bottles are made out of environmentally friendly materials that are reusable and will reduce the amount of plastic in our oceans. Glasstic bottles are made from glass bottle inserts, food grade recyclable caps and bases, BPA-free and shatterproof outer protective shells, and seals made from silicone. Glasstic is one of the many ways you can reduce your waste on this planet.
In addition to using a reusable glass water bottle, try recycling things we use daily like cans, cartons, cardboard. You can also reuse many materials rather than throwing them away like clothes, containers, grocery bags and even packaging or even just reducing the amount of electricity you use by turning off lights that aren’t being used.
So, why should you choose glass over plastic? To start, plastic is not as easy to recycle as glass and glass also lasts much longer. It’s durable and designed to use for many years. Glass is made from naturally abundant materials and it doesn’t degrade over time like plastic. It’s the more natural and environmentally friendly choice.
Drinking out of glass also tastes better. It’s the same reasoning on why a glass bottle of Coca-Cola tastes better than plastic or canned. It’s because of the potential chemical contact that alters the flavor with plastic. This doesn’t occur in glass bottles because it’s one of the most inert materials.
Use Non-Toxic Products
It’s not just the environment we care about, but also your health. Plastic bottles are known to contain BPA, which is an industrial chemical that can seep into your beverages. Exposure to this can impact the brain, children and infants, and possibly increase blood pressure. At Glasstic, our bottles are completely BPA and toxin free. It’s the alternative to plastic that will benefit your health and the environment. The packaging of disposable plastic bottles when incinerated, produces toxic fumes. The materials these plastic bottles are made from take centuries to decompose and are the more prevalent form of pollution in our oceans.
In summary, these methods are just small, effortless steps you can take to save our planet. These choices to use reusable water bottles or recycle cartons aren’t huge life changing decisions, but together, they will create a greater impact on our environment and its future. So, we at Glasstic hope you consider changing small habits in your lifestyle and remember to go glass.
