Sunday Funday Giveaway: Wean Green 5.1 oz. Wean Tubs | Pack of 2

Sunday, August 12th, 2012

I am slowly, but surely trying to wean my family from plastic food storage containers. It seems our cabinets are overflowing with a plethora of mismatched plastic tops and containers. It’s super annoying to dig through them to find the matching sets when packing up leftovers or getting ready for an outing. Plus many of them are stained a yucky reddish/brownish color from storing pasta and the like….ewww! And we all know that plastic is bad for our health and even worse for the environment, but is there a good alternative for food storage? One that is eco-friendly, budget-friendly, and health-friendly? Enter Wean Green glass storage containers!

Okay, I know what you are thinking…glass and kids are not a good mix, right?. You are probably worried the Wean Green containers will break after only a few uses and you’ll be reuniting with your plastic containers in no time. Well, be assured I had the same doubts in using glass to store foods/snacks for my kids. That is until I saw this video where they show fall after fall of Wean Green containers and not a! They even bowl with Wean Green containers, play pool with them, and use one as a hacky-sack…and NO broken glass whatsoever! Wean Green containers are made of tempered glass, which is basically glass that has been strengthened during the manufacturing stage. So no worries if your kid accidentally drops these containers…they are made super tough to last!

Tempered glass is also designed to withstand sudden and drastic temperature changes. Translation, you can freeze and microwave Wean Green containers. This is perfect if you are using Wean Green containers to store and serve homemade baby food. (Although do be careful, as with ALL glass, tempered glass will likely break if you expose it to thermal cooling shock. For example if you were to throw a frozen container into boiling water).
