We all know to think carefully about the food we put into our body, but when was the last time you thought about the containers you store your food in? The dishes you keep food in can have a huge impact on its taste and your health, so if you’re still using plastic containers to carry your food, here are a few reasons why you should consider switching to glass.

Action Glass - 4 Reasons Why Glass Containers are Better Than Plastic


  1. It keeps your food safer.

Researcher now shows that toxins in plastic can migrate to your food every time you prepare or store meals in a plastic container. Glass is also cleaner than plastic because it’s a non-porous surface. Plastic’s microscopic pores will absorb food and germs that even hot water and soap can’t get out.

  1. Glass enhances your food’s flavor.

Have you ever noticed that the same drink will taste different if it comes from a carton or a glass? That’s because food and drinks actually do taste better when they’re stored in glass. Glass’ glossy surface has the ability to keep other nearby food odors out. And if you’re a fan of microwaved meals, glass containers better keep your food from getting soggy or spongy.

  1. It will save you money in the long run.

At first glance, glass containers are more expensive than plastic ones. But, odds are you’ll only have to buy them once, unlike plastic containers which need to be replaced every year or two.

  1. Glass looks nicer.

While this may not be the most rational reason on the list, we still think it’s a good one! Let’s face it, you spent all that time preparing your food, so don’t you want it to look the best that it can? Especially when you’re hosting, glass containers look much more formal and inviting than plastic ones.
