Glass is sustainable from its origin to its demise and therefore makes one of the best environmentally friendly forms of packaging available. It is 100% safe with no chemical leakage and its nonporous surface doesn’t absorb food, germs and smells making it the perfect reusable container. Glass jars can be reused for a zillion things, such as displaying candles or even saving the cents.
