Milk, we’re sure all of you reading this know what it is. In fact, many of you have probably had a sip of it at some point throughout your life. That’s because a cold cup of milk is as timeless as a Disney movie. Although there are many great ways to enjoy a drink of milk, one way in particular stands above the rest. Glass milk bottles offer a wide range of benefits that traditional bottles can’t.

So MOOve over plastic bottles, here are five reasons why glass milk bottles are an UDDERly great option.

Glass milk bottles make milk taste fresher

Packaging for food and drinks has a bigger impact on the overall quality of the product than you may think. For starters, it ensures the product stays cold (which in turn makes it taste better). Glass bottles are also impermeable meaning that the glass won’t, in any way, shape or form, impact the taste of the contents inside the bottle as all outside chemicals will be kept out. The better the taste of milk, the more people will drink it!

 

Glass milk bottles are better for the environment

Thus, it’s important to make sure we take care of our planet to ensure it’s with us in the coming centuries, but how do glass bottles help this cause? Well, they’re reusable, meaning that once you finish a delicious bottle of milk, you can return it so it can be refilled and reused without losing its quality. Fun fact; glass is the only packaging product that can achieve this incredible feat. This cuts down on the amount of waste going to landfills which, in turn, promotes sustainability in our world. Consumers are becoming more sensitive to environmental hazards and want products that compliment this new mentality.

Glass milk bottles are more visually appealing

When it comes down to it, we all want our meals to look appealing, it’s just human nature. Do you want to know what one of the best ways to enhance the presentation of a product? That’s right, glass bottles. Clear bottles allow people to clearly see the product that rests inside. They are also simple and elegant. This makes them stand out to consumers as they associate glass with positive thoughts. Keep in mind that an appealing product can trick the human psyche into thinking the product inside tastes better. That’s why packaging matters!

Glass milk bottles are healthier

Glass on the other hand, is made from natural materials and is the only packaging material that is considered completely safe by the FDA. The resistant barrier of glass bottles prevents compounds like BPA which, if ingested, can negatively impact a variety of bodily functions. Milk also lasts twice as long in glass bottles and, even at the highest boiling points, does not release toxic chemicals. The transparency is also great with glass bottles as you can clearly see if something is wrong. Thus, when you’re drinking a glass of milk from a glass bottle, you can rest easy knowing that everything is going to be alright.

Glass milk bottles can be used for a wide variety of products

Although milk has been the focus of this article, glass bottles can be used for so much more. Glass bottles can hold all sorts of different drinks, condiments and foods. Examples of this would be utilizing the containers to make juice bottles at a juice bar, hold spices and mix ingredients. Glass bottles also have non-food applications as well. An example of this would be turning them into flower pots or candle holders that can be the centerpieces for a baby shower, a wedding or even a party at your new place. You can turn these bottles into whatever you want for any situation, the possibilities are truly endless.
