Why should you use apothecary jars?
There are a couple good reasons to use apothecary jars, but you will have to decide for yourself what reason speaks to you the most. The first, most straightforward reason is that, obviously, using glass bottles is safer for the environment than using plastic bottles. By using apothecary jars you are actively reducing plastic waste in your household. Another great advantage of using apothecary jars is that you can clean them and reuse them endlessly. They will last you a lot longer than any plastic bottles will, and you won’t have to worry about strange and dangerous chemicals that might seep into the contents of the jar. Of course, with plastic there’s always risks.
Personal use or professional use?
Whether you are interested in using apothecary jars for your business or just for at home, they will not disappoint. Apothecary jars are great for distribution of products, since the stopper is airtight. This means that, when closed, the jars will not leak any product. They can also simply be used for storing herbs or oils at home. They are not only easy to use, but they also look very classy and retro. You can use them to package the all natural make-up products you make, to store homemade essential oil blends or to serve lemonade out of at parties.
Environmentally friendly is customer friendly
Since making environmentally aware choices is rapidly becoming more and more popular among the younger generations, naturally made products are now more desirable than products made with strange chemicals, wrapped in plastic. Selling naturally made products is one thing, but selling these products in glass jars instead of plastic will make them much more attractive to anyone who is trying to be more environmentally aware. This way you can attract new customers whilst also helping to save the planet. There’s really no downsides to it!
