Choosing Between Glass and r-PET: A Guide to Packaging Sustainability

At NZ Native Honey, we take pride in offering you not only the finest honey but also the opportunity to make choices that align with your values. Our commitment to transparency drives us to provide information that empowers you to make an informed decision between our glass jars and r-PET (recycled polyethylene terephthalate) jars. Here's a guide to help you understand the distinctions and choose the packaging that resonates with you:

Glass Jars:

  • Elegance and Craftsmanship:
    NZ Native Honey in glass jars not only gives a traditional and classic feel to the presentation, but adds to the premium nature of our products. The clear glass also allows you to see at a glance when you might need to think about placing your next order if you're running low.

  • Preservation of Flavor:
    The inert nature of a glass vessel is conducive to ensuring your honey remains chemically unaltered when it's in the jar, thus preserving the purity and richness of your honey. 

  • Recyclability:
    Glass is endlessly recyclable, supporting a circular economy and reducing the demand for new raw materials. Choosing glass contributes to a sustainable future, granted you put it in the right bin when it's time for a fresh order.

r-PET Jars:

  • Sustainability and Environmental Impact:
    NZ Native Honey's r-PET jars embody our commitment to not only the diverse preferences of our customers, but also sustainability by utilizing recycled polyethylene terephthalate. This choice reduces the environmental impact associated with new plastic production.

  • Lightweight and Transportation Efficiency:
    r-PET jars are lightweight, promoting efficiency in transportation and reducing carbon emissions. This eco-friendly feature enhances the overall sustainability of our packaging.

  • Durability and Safety:
    r-PET jars offer durability without compromising on safety. r-PET is less likely to break when dropped or otherwise mishandled, and safer to clean up in the event that the vessel does indeed break.

Your Choice, Your Values:

At NZ Native Honey, we celebrate the diversity of our customers and recognize that each of you has unique preferences. Whether you prefer the classic elegance of glass or the eco-conscious sustainability of r-PET, our commitment to delivering the highest quality honey remains steadfast.
