There are more reasons than just health risks for switching from plastic to glass containers. Here are a few to consider.

The food storage world has been rocked in recent years with the announcement of the dangers of BPA – a common ingredient in many plastics. With BPA now listed as a possible carcinogen, consumers and companies have been scrambling to replace plastic food storage containers with safer options.

While there are plastic containers which do not contain BPA available for food storage, there are a number of reasons why choosing glass might make more sense, including environmental impacts.

Here are 7 good reasons to make the switch to glass containers:

1. For Health’s Sake

With all the information available on the dangers of BPA {Bisphenol A} in plastics, I’m more than happy to avoid storing my food in plastic containers to avoid any hormone disruptors or any other such crazy stuff.

2. Easy To Clean

I love that my glass pieces come out of the dishwasher feeling clean, smelling clean and looking sparkling clean. Plastic doesn’t do good things when heated up and washing plastic by hand has never worked well for me. The plastic always felt like it had a residue on it.

3. Cost Effective

While the initial investment of glass food storage is more than plastic, the longevity of glass exponentially pays for itself in the long haul….

5. Multi-Purpose Containers

One of my favorite reasons to love glass so much is because I can bake, serve, store, re-heat and/or freeze all in the same container….

6. Safe To Re-Heat in the Oven…

When we used plastic containers, we had to transfer food to glass containers to re-heat in the oven and we should have always transferred food before  microwaving too, but that didn’t always happen. We don’t own a microwave now…, but glass is an excellent, safe option for re-heating food if you do.
