Eco-Friendly Food Storage

Hey plastic don't be rude,
Stop leaching into my food,
With a green storage container,
I'll become a plastic abstainer!

A Plasticky Situation

Converting to an eco-friendly, reusable food storage container will not only allow you to help reduce the amount of plastic that enters the waste stream but will also keep you and your family safe from the dangers associated with microwaving plastic. Here are some non-plastic, reusable glass container options for you to consider:

  • Glass containers are BPA free, freezable, microwaveable, dishwasher safe, and come equipped with plastic or glass lids.
  • Stainless-steel containers are made from high quality food grade steel and are BPA free, not freezable, dishwasher-safe, and reheatable only by stovetop.
  • Ceramic containers are BPA free, visually appealing, freezable, microwavable, dishwasher safe, and have a smooth non-porous surface for easy food release.
  • Polylactic acid (PLA) containers are made from plant-derived sustainable raw materials and are BPA free, freezable, not microwavable, dishwasher safe, and fully biodegradable and compostable.
