Deciding Between Glass vs. Plastic Bottles
The common debate when choosing bottles for your juice line is whether to choose glass or plastic. The two are widely used across the beverage industry, and the choice between them depends on aesthetics, cost, and environmental impact. While glass is associated with environmental friendliness, its carbon footprint is greater than that of plastic because of the number of resources needed for its initial production. Although glass is continually recyclable, there is only a marginal difference between the actual recycling stats of glass vs. PET plastic.
Plastic juice bottles are the more durable and affordable option. While some drinks are a better fit for glass, others are best in plastic bottles. Therefore, it is important to weigh the pros and cons of both to determine the best bottle type for your juice brand.

Benefits of Using Glass Juice Bottles
The quality of our glass bottles is evident in their weight—they’re sturdy and durable, meaning less chance of damaged products.
Because glass is non-permeable and minimally reactive, it can greatly extend product shelf life.
Colored glass, which readily absorbs UV light, can protect light-sensitive products such as many wines.
Glass bottles come in such a variety of sizes, shapes, styles, and colors, there’s one to suit every need. Openings can be wide or narrow, and bottles may also have handles and a variety of labeling.
Easily reusable and recyclable, glass is a sustainable bottle choice, enhancing consumer perceptions.
Consistency & Accuracy
Glass bottles can be produced quickly with excellent consistency and accuracy, meaning less waste overall and reduced costs.
Benefits of Using Plastic Juice Bottles
PET plastic bottles are 100% recyclable, and with updates in manufacturing technology, plastic bottles have a lighter design, which reduces the amount of plastic that’s used to make them.
PET plastic bottles don’t react with water or food, making them an excellent option for packaging consumable goods. They also have a strong barrier with the outside environment, which prevents oxygen from getting in and spoiling the product.
PET plastic can be molded into different shapes and sizes at a low cost, making it easier for companies to have a unique packaging design that stands out on the shelves.
Plastic bottles are shatterproof and durable. They don’t require a lot of protection during transportation, making it a cost-effective option for manufacturers looking to save money on additional packaging.

Closures can add the style and function your products need, including:
- Tamper evident lids
