Glass... the complete package
Choose for your children. Choose health. Choose glass.

We already know that a carefully considered diet plays an important part in keeping our children healthy and happy. But do we know enough about the containers that our food and drinks are packaged in?

A moment of clarity

The great thing about glass is that it is completely pure and organic. And given its organic nature, it’s not hard to believe that glass is not only good for the environment, but good for you and your family, too. As a result of the inert nature of glass bottles and jars, they don’t mix or react with their contents, protecting them and leaving the choice of what you feed your family entirely up to you. It’s therefore no surprise that glass packaging has been tried, tested and trusted for thousands of years to be completely safe and reliable.

Glass is the only packaging “generally recognised as safe” by the U.S. Food &Drug Administration.

Glass is made from three natural substances – sand, limestone and soda ash – and needs nothing more, and it is the only packaging material rated “generally recognised as safe” by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration. Not only does glass keep your family’s food and drinks safe, but it is also infinitely reusable and recyclable. So you can reuse your glass bottles and jars again and again, or actively participate in the preservation of the planet by recycling them.
