Plastic is not fit for humans and the planet, period! I would love to see businesses resorting to glass like they used to. It's safer. I hate the fact that I have to use a plastic drinking bottle that supposed to be safe to drink liquids out of so the advertisers say. I would like to eradicate plastic near our foods and water sources. Get back to the basics; use natural glass. There is no such thing as natural plastic!
