How did you spend the 7th of April – World Health Day? And what do you do to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle?
We here at Friends of Glass know how important it is to look after your health – and we want to help people see the different ways glass packaging can help you be healthy.
Glass is a completely inert material – meaning that it prevents the leaching of chemicals into its contents. This also means that taste an vitamins contained within your food and drink aren’t damaged or affected in any way by the packaging. With food safety being such a big issue, with food safety scandals playing out in a big way, it is important to care about what you eat. Glass can ensure that through its various properties.
Glass is such a safe material when it comes to protecting its contents, that it’s not only important in the safety of food and drink contained within it, but also pharmaceutical packaging. Increasing importance is being placed upon glass in the medical industry as the best packaging material for fully and completely protecting medicine.
At the end of the day, if we want to look after our health properly, we have to be careful about what we do, to ensure that we don’t ingest or come face to face with any harmful materials. Glass can do that. Glass protects what it holds within it, and doesn’t leach into the contents to damage or change it in any way. So when you’re considering the health and safety factors of your food and drink decisions, why not consider that – and look at the packaging itself, and not just the contents? After all, your health deserves the best!
