Careful readers will find that most of our kitchen supplies are now glass. Why are glass bottles slowly replacing plastic bottles? A study says glass bottles can help us introduce kitchen bills, while glass is a bit more environmentally friendly.
Brand plastic costs more lower
Some supermarkets and brands-including Heinz and Marmite-have quietly been charging up to twice as much for convenient plastic bottles, even when they contain less of the same product than glass containers.This is despite glass jars being more expensive to produce than low-cost and environmentally harmful plastic bottles, Marmite is far from the only brand to make its convenient plastic bottles more expensive, even though glass jars are costlier to produce and transport and the squeezy containers often contain less of the product.
It explained why shoppers often pay more for plastic squeezy bottles. According to Supershoppers' research, nine out of 10 supermarkets stocked glass and plastic bottles in different sizes, which makes it harder for shoppers to work out which item is cheaper as the face-value prices may fool them.

Ten years ago this month, the Mail launched a trailblazing campaign to rid Britain of the scourge of plastic supermarket bags-prompted by a heartrending, shaming picture of an endangered turtle entangled in one, which was used on the front page.
you through small daily steps you can take-with little expense or effort-to make dramatic inroads into reducing the amount of plastic you use.
Even simply changing one habit-such as using the reusable coffee cup we’re giving away today, instead of a throwaway cup-will help decrease the demand for new plastics. If every Daily Mail reader uses their cup just once a day in place of a takeaway cup, millions of plastic-lined paper cups will be saved from landfill in a year.
It’s simple maths. Use a plastic bag twice and you halve your plastic footprint. Buy one bar of soap and you may spare the planet two or even three pump-action hand wash bottles. Inspire someone else and the impact is doubled.
We’ll tell you how to double your recycling efficiency overnight, banish plastic from your kitchen and dodge food packaging. Better yet, you can even shop to save the planet with gorgeous- and reusable-glass alternatives.
