Packing drinks and food in glass containers brings countless benefits to your brand. Glass bottles are beautiful, clean, sustainable and resistant. In this article we highlight some of the main benefits of glass packaging, so you can have better use of this amazing packaging solution.
The transparency of the glass packaging guarantees visibility to your product, which allows them to stand out on any shelf and table.
According to Designer Obach, the transparency trend is primarily found with beverages. The print can be done directly onto glass or with the use of a transparent sticker. Brands often use the color white as a background color in contrast to the product’s actual color.
For each different product, there is a more suitable design.
Hello-Bottle sells glass containers conceived by professional designers with years of experience in the glass packaging segment.
Vintage designs like Philos can be used to store water, oil, juices, or essences.
As we saw in previous articles, the packaging was initially created because of its function. In the beginning, there was no concern with the aesthetic aspect. The packages were made for the sole purpose of being useful for preserving food and drinks for longer and safer. According to the Glass Packaging Institute, “glass is the trusted and proven packaging for health, taste and the environment. It is also the only widely-used food packaging granted the FDA status of “GRAS” or generally recognized as safe – the highest standard.”
Glass Packaging is a hygienic material that, being nonporous and impermeable, keeps the characteristics of flavor, purity, and quality of everything that is stored in them untouched.
Drinks and food placed in glass containers can be heated and cooled without risk of contamination. When heated in the microwave, oven, or stove, the glass, as it is a more heat resistant material, does not run the risk of melting and releasing particles that can mix with the product it contains, as it can happen with plastic containers.
Glass bottles and jars composition prevents foods and liquids from being contaminated by dangerous chemicals. Glass has an almost zero rate of chemical interactions. So “when consumers choose foods or beverages that are packaged in glass, they avoid potential risks while enjoying a number of benefits” (Glass Packaging Institute).
Glass is a 100% recyclable material, which has an infinite renewal cycle. Thus, it can be recycled and reused countless times, reducing the impact on the environment.
One of Hello-Bottle’s main concerns is sustainability, and this concern translates into the creation of our products. That is why we choose glass as the primary raw material for the manufacture of our packaging.
This concern is visible in the design of the Wild Glass line, made with 100% post-consumer recycled glass.
In addition to designing environmentally friendly products such as Wild Glass, Hello-Bottle is also concerned with informing and guiding consumers about sustainable practices. That is why we publish exclusive content every month on our blog and on our social networks, which provide information on topics such as local waste recycling systems and international glass bottle return systems (SDR).
Hello-Bottle itself also implements specific return and recycling practices for particular components of its products, such as Pearl’s rings that are collected by our company in a return system that takes them to recycle.
