Plastik vs Aluminum vs Glass – Which Better?

Pros and cons of plastic, aluminum, and glass.

Plastic

  • Consumers should eliminate plastic first because the oil and natural gas that is needed to produce plastic are buried deep in the earth’s crust, which means manufacturers must drill through layers upon layers of rock in order to reach it. Unfortunately, drilling is harmful to the environment, so the process of producing plastic is not very eco-friendly.
  • As plastic breaks down, it releases toxic chemicals into the environment as it takes hundreds of years to disintegrate when sitting in a landfill. Recycling plastic can solve the problems instead of sending them to the landfill. However, most plastics can only be recycled once or twice and once the plastic can no longer be recycled, it is typically used to create fabric, which will probably end up in a landfill at some point in the future.

Glass

  • There are advantages and disadvantages to choosing glass. One of the weaknesses of glass is its weight. Because the glass is fairly heavy and fragile compared to other materials, it is much more difficult to transport. More energy is required to transport glass as products that are packaged in glass cannot be packed as tightly as those with aluminum or plastic packaging.
  • Glass is 100% recyclable and there is no limit. By using recycled glass to create new glass bottle bottles, manufacturers significantly reduce their carbon footprint.

Aluminum

  • It is easy to transport aluminum cans because they are lightweight and can be packed tightly together.
  • Transporting aluminum is easier than transporting glass
  • In order to produce aluminum, manufacturers need bauxite, which is a mineral that must be mined from the earth. Mining for bauxite is harmful to the environment and can lead to water contamination, erosion, and habitat destruction.
  • Aluminum is 100% recyclable and can be recycled over and over again.
  • The aluminum that does make it to landfills can sit for up to 500 years before it is fully decomposed.

Which should you choose? The best two options are glass and aluminum. Make sure to make a good choice
