New research by The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists has sparked a debate about the safety of some everyday household items for pregnant women. It says there is not enough information about the potential chemical risks to foetuses from cosmetics and food packaging.
While views differ on whether we should be concerned or not, one thing Friends of Glass knows for sure is the peace of mind offered by glass packaging. People concerned about their health often prefer to buy things packaged in glass. Here are 3 reasons why:
1. Glass is inert so it doesn’t need additional layers to protect the food and drink it contains.
2. This also means glass packing keeps food and drink fresher for longer, helping us enjoy food at its best and reducing food waste.
3. It’s safe to use glass over and over again in your home. It can be safely sterilised, put in the dishwasher and microwave.
Perhaps this is why it’s no surprise that glass baby feeding bottles are making a comeback. Friends of Glass is very happy to see that French group SGD, a world leader in glass bottle manufacturing for the perfume, cosmetics and pharmacy industries, is re-introducing glass feeding bottles in France in response to demand.
We say bonnes nouvelles to that!
