Glass vs Plastic

Glass and Plastic are two things that are very helpful. They both have their benefits and downsides. Some believe that glass makes the product taste better rather than when a product is in plastic. Glass can keep things fizzier and can handle various temperatures compared to plastic. Glass is also completely recyclable, which is much better for the ecosystem. On the other hand, glass is less durable, heavier, costs a lot more to ship, and is dangerous when broken. 

Plastic is a good choice but it has huge negative impacts. Plastic is lighter, cheaper, versatile, and more durable. Everyone has seen the impacts of plastic around the world. Plastic is everywhere and never fully degrades. You can recycle plastic, but not every single piece of it. Plastic is more convenient to use and you can easily find the right plastic container for anything you need. Plastic is definitely a good product. Although, the consequences of plastic around the world far out way that of glass.
