One of our hallmarks here at Traders Point Creamery is the beautiful glass bottles and jars we use to package many of our grassfed dairy products. They are non-toxic and free of BPA, BPS, and DEHP. For purity, beauty, and sustainability, glass is unparalleled among commonly used packaging materials, and we are committed to keeping our “grass in glass.” Here’s why…
Health Benefits of Glass
Glass is the most trusted material for protecting the purity of its contents. It is made from natural, non-toxic raw materials. Unlike plastic, glass will never leach harmful chemicals into your food, no matter how many times it is used. Of particular concern are the bisphenol compounds (BPA, BPS, etc), found primarily in plastic packagings, which has been shown to disrupt hormones; recent studies have revealed that even BPA-free plastics can impact our bodies’ normal endocrine activity. With glass, there is no possibility for toxin contamination.
Glass is the only type of container that the FDA labels as GRAS: Generally Recognized As Safe.
Environmental Benefits of Glass
Since glass is made completely from natural materials, it is 100% recyclable –over and over again, without any loss in its quality. The process requires less energy and uses fewer natural resources than any other packaging material.
