Step Into Our Tupperware

November 27, 2011 at 9:39 pm 4 comments

The brand name “Tupperware” has become synonymous with (and inaccurately used when describing) our many collections of cheap plastic containers and mismatched lids. The majority of these polyethylene containers are not “Tupperware” and only became available during the last two decades (replacing the oh-so inconvenient aluminum foil and plastic baggies for food storage).

 

What was once a luxury has become a major clutter issue for many of our Customers – especially when it comes to housing mismatched shapes, sizes and lids.

We encourage those struggling with said clutter to reuse the containers for tiny miscellanea (board game pieces, tool related items, gift tags, buttons etc…) and upgrade to glass and stainless steel wherever possible. Because despite the World Health Organization’s findings on Bisphenol-A, we believe in mitigating health and environmental risks wherever possible.  

  

Check out the kitchn’s fantastic article, appropriately titled “How To Control Plastic Container Clutter”, for tips on organizing and discarding.

Then treat yourself to some vintage “Pyrex”!

    I have been using glass with lock on lids, but recently bought these from Costco which are BPA free and I prefer as they are lighter and take less room to store. I took this description from the Rubbermaid site, “Rubbermaid Premier food storage containers are made with Tritan™ plastic that resists stains and odors. Plus, Premiers have Flex & Seal™ lids that are easy to seal and remove. Part of the Easy Find Lids system, Premier lids snap to bases and other lids so you will not have to search for lids again and nest together to take up less room in your cabinets.”

    What a timely article! I’m just sorting through all of my containers now. After 15 years of using the same Rubbermaid containers, I bought a set of Rubbermaid Easy Find Lid containers that stack and store on sale at Walmart. It’s about $18.99 for a set of 12 containers and lids (24 pieces total).
