Glass food storage containers
In this guide, you will discover many reasons why you should ditch all your plastic food boxes and switch to glass food storage containers. Firstly, glass food containers are much better for the environment. We all know the harmful effects of plastic on the environment and switching to glass containers is one way to live green
Glass food storage containers are also much more hygienic than plastic containers. Plastic can become scratched through use and food can get stuck in the cracks, which is not sanitary. Plastic containers tend to discolour unattractively with use. Glass food containers with lids keep odours locked inside and keep foods fresher longer than plastic.

Preserving jars and stainless steel lid storage jars look great on your counter and are a clean way to store food for long periods of time.
