The tupper arrived in Spain in the sixties, and since then its use has not stopped growing up to become an everyday thing for both transporting food to work as to freeze the leftovers. Although it is not anything new, as before in Spain, there were already a traditional lunch pails metal that lead families when they went hiking in the mountains or spend the day at the beach.
The novelty of the tupperware, a product that came from the united States, it was a material, until then virtually unknown: plastic, and the multiple ways that it was to save all kinds of things. That’s why, for many years, tupperware has been synonymous with “plastic container”, ignoring that there are also glass. These are much more beneficial, not only for the environment, and to take a further step towards a model of zero waste, but also for our own agency and the naturalness of the products that we store in them. They also have some drawbacks, as they are quite more expensive, although they last longer, and can break more easily than plastic.
Without a trace of bad smells
In the tupperware plastic you can create microgrooves and ridges in the introduction remains of food that is fermenten or rot and they are difficult to clean. The táper of plastic will end up smelling by the fault of compounds such as putrescine and cadaverine. But in the glass it is impossible for the resistance of the inner walls of glass, which prevent the accumulation of debris microscopic food and leave bad odors chronic. Even so, many tupperware containers of glass have their plastic cap and, therefore, the problem of the smell remains. Recently IKEA has launched a tupperware glass with a lid made of bamboo, a 100% recyclable and natural.
More recyclable and ecological
Although plastic can be recycled and reconverted into other objects, it is true that it is a material that is hardly biodegradable. In addition, tupperware, plastic lasts longer than the crystal by wear and tear. The crystal is a natural material while the plastic is produced through oil and other chemical compounds.
You can warm up without problems
The tupperware containers of plastic cannot withstand powers of microwave over 500 watts, but the glass can be applied to higher temperatures, ideal for cooking in the oven. Tupperware, glass support up to 300 ° C in the cooking and up to -40ºC-freezing, do not deform or degrade with use, or stain.
More natural and no toxins
One of the dangers of tupperware, plastic are the microplásticos, they have a great impact on the environment and wildlife, as well as about our own agency as explained in the article Prevents the microplásticos in the tea with alternative ecological Objective well-being. And some of these particles, the plastic takes other artificial composites that can be toxic to our body.
Hold acid products
Many foods have juices acids that can be very reagents for oxidation, or reduction, and that can therefore lead to alterations in the walls of the plastic, although they are microscopic. None of this happens with the táperes glass.
