Our brand is extremely passionate about being plastic free. I can't count the number of times I have been to a beach and immediately started picking up garbage, mostly plastic bags, straws and bottles. When KLÜSTERFØK was started, there was no question that we would use glass packaging.
According to the Glass Packing Institute,
"Glass is 100% recyclable and can be recycled endlessly without loss in quality or purity - something few food and beverage packaging options can claim."
You can check out their website for much more information about the benefits of using glass instead of plastic.
Is a glass jar a little bit more expensive? The honest answer is yes but, we do our best to keep our costs competitive while making the smallest environmental footprint possible.
Eventually, we want to start a jar buy back program where our customers will be able to send their jars back when they are finished with them (if they want to)! for a discount on their next order. So stick with us as we are still figuring this process out, more info to come!
