How to Switch From Plastic Food Storage to Glass Food Storage Containers

by Amit Malviya Digital Marketing Expert

Back in September, I took the “No Plastic for a Month Challenge”, and it inspired me to replace all of my plastic food storage with glass storage containers, and I haven’t looked back. Below the jump, you’ll find out how I transformed my refrigerator.

First, I did some research to find the everyday glass food storage containers I now needed. I opted for Glasslock Glass Food Storage because they are stackable, made of tempered glass, and microwave safe. Next, I dusted off my vintage glass pieces, and I started saving jars. Finally, I gave my refrigerator a good cleaning, and swapped out my plastic containers for glass, which I donated to a friend.

What do I like about glass containers? They are easy to clean, don’t retain odors or germs, and because they’re clear, what you’re looking for is quickly spotted. I replaced my stained plastic containers, with both new and old glass ones, and I found myself with what I would describe as a pretty refrigerator. The switch has motivated me to keep it clean and arranged.

Tips

1 Look for tempered glass. It’s heat & cold resistant, so it can go from the oven, to the table, to the refrigerator. It also means they can be dropped on occasion, and won’t break (most of the time).

2 Choose a collection that nests inside itself. It saves shelf space.

3 Square vs Round: Definitely a preference, but square generally wastes less space in the refrigerator, and fits better in lunch bags.

4 Save those old food jars. They are great for bulk foods, beverages on the go, and leftovers for your guests.

Have you made the switch? Do you have any good glass tips?
