New Year, New You!

Let 2014 be the year you make your healthy lifestyle goals and resolutions – and stick to them! Why not commit to using Glass as your only form of packaging in 2014?

Summary

Glass packaging is all natural – you see what you get. The start of a new year always symbolises a new start – new wardrobe, new habits, new health plan – new you! Sticking to the new health routine of 2014 can be difficult, and soon healthy desires can be replaced by the wish for something quick, easy and no hassle. But guess what – they don’t need to be replaced! With just a few easy steps and habits we can ensure that the food we eat makes us feel satisfied, comforted, as well as healthy.

Watch what you eat!

As consumers we have all become more aware of the types of food and drink that we put into our bodies. We are now aiming for a more holistic approach that we can apply to every area in our busy lives. Food is no longer just a source of comfort or necessity – it’s also a way for us to regulate and manage our health.

With a decisive shift towards transparency becoming more and more noticeable in our daily choices regarding food and drink, people are also looking for  foods that have inherent health benefits, are fresh and well preserved, and food products that can make their lives easier in the long run – no matter how hectic their schedules become! 

What you see is what you get!

The packaging of food and drinks can significantly influence the quality, nutritional value, and taste of the contents within it. Glass has the unique property that it is completely gastight – meaning that there’s no leaching or migration of the packaging to the contents. Glass doesn’t react with, or absorb, foreign substances – regardless of the product contained within, or what’s outside of it.What this means – when you buy food and drink in glass packaging, you really are getting what you see in front of you; the contents, as is, without any changes or diffusion. This also means that the taste, vitamins, and other benefits which have been sealed in the glass bottle or jar remain – unchanged and unaffected by outside forces. 

Use Glass to help you meet those 2014 resolutions!

The inert quality of glass makes it a perfect material for storing your food and drink – not just on the shelves in supermarkets, but also in your own home!

 

Whatever you preserve in glass will retain its taste, smell, and nutritional value.

Even small changes, like using more products packaged at home more frequently, can decrease various health risks. Glass keeps food fresh, and safe, from outside forces.It’s not just the food inside that’s important if you’re trying for your ‘healthiest’ you. The packaging material your food is stored in also plays a significant role in you and your loved one’s health.Glass is made from 100% natural materials, just like that healthy food you’re mentally checking off your shopping list. And if you want to make sure you’re healthy eating in 2014, why not go the whole way?

About Friends of Glass

Friends of Glass started in 2008 as an awareness campaign for glass. It was created by FEVE, the European Container Glass Federation, an international not-for-profit association representing glass packaging for food and drink, flacons for perfumery, pharmacy and cosmetics and glass tableware makers. Friends of Glass unites a community of people from different countries in Europe and beyond who are convinced that glass is an ideal packaging material because of its unique environmental, economic and family-friendly benefits. Individuals, national organisations, agencies and companies that believe in the sustainability credentials of glass are also proud members of the community.

Glass is good for you and the environment. Your choice makes a difference - be safe, be healthy, be smart. Join the community, follow www.friendsofglass.com and become a Friend of Glass yourself.
