For generations, consumers have declared glass as the most trusted and sustainable packaging there is. Being one of the oldest and most iconic materials for packaging, it is remarkable to see the glass trend still today escalating so quickly. Consumers investing in glass packaging experience:
- Health & environmental advantages
- Infinite sizes, textures, shapes & colors
- Economic Prosperity
- Luxury & high quality packaging display
Here are some reasons to consider switching to glass, a 100% recyclable alternative.
Taste – The most obvious and important packaging factor. The taste of glass is taint-free and inert. Glass is refreshingly reusable and impermeable ensuring the strength, aroma and flavor of your product.
Quality – Can you image the look on your grandmother’s face if she saw you displaying her famous cranberry sauce in a plastic container on Thanksgiving? Esthetically, glass offers transparency and versatility to allow the natural pigments of the product look appealing.
Healthy for you – Glass has an almost zero rate of chemical interactions. We can reduce harmful gas emissions in the atmosphere and conserve non-renewable fossil fuels by recycling glass.
Some might argue that glass is expensive because it can be. But think about this: Unlike plastic, glass is a long term investment and will actually save you money in the long run. Over 80% of the glass that is recovered is made into new glass products.
Okay so glass is pretty stellar, but how does this affect your business?
Expect the glass packaging market to reach $59.94 billion by 2019. That’s a 3.4% increase every year since the $47.43 billion in 2012. If this is any indication of the glass industries potential, businesses need to begin preparing for the anticipated demand.
