More Information On Our Medium Containers
Light and strong - allowing years of use to store dry foods such as nuts, dried fruit, seeds or even herbs and spices.
Hand-crafted in our workshop: This container is made using 3D printers and is hand finished and carefully inspected. We have designed and crafted it to last for years and to be stronger and lighter than glass, to be plant-based, and to be biodegradable.
Fantastic Plant Plastic
🌱 Plant-Based: This container is made out of polylactic acid (PLA), a plant-based bioplastic. The material is created by fermenting plant sugars - e.g. carrots - and processed into the raw material that we craft into this jar. Micro-organisms - both fungi and bacteria - do the fermenting!
🐞 Biodegradable: If after years of useful life you want to compost this container, simply put it in an insulated compost bin. Add a handful of soil to introduce the composting process and as it matures, turn it fortnightly to keep the naturally occurring microbes working.
👅 No Taste: Unlike many plastics, PLA is tasteless - making it excellent for holding high quality foods such as gourmet coffee or tea.
🐝 No Toxins: PLA does not contain or release any toxins and is completely bisphenol A (BPA) free.
Strong: Drop one of these containers from a high shelf onto a stone floor and it’ll just bounce and be fine - the lid is likely to stay on too!
Capacity: Half Litre volume.
Weight: Just 165 grams.
Dimensions: 110 mm diameter x 90mm height. Large enough to get a good snack in, small enough to fit in the school bag.
Stackable: You can safely stack these containers five high and they’ll also stack neatly on top of other jars of the same size.
Long Lasting: This container will give you years of service. Here's how to look after your jar -
☂️ Dry Goods Only: This container is not guaranteed to be waterproof so use it for dry goods, not liquids.
💧 Handwash Only: Handwash normally in your sink – our jars will be fine to about 50℃.
🔥 No Ovens, No Microwaves, No Dishwashers: Avoid heating the container above 50℃ and keep away from direct heat.
🌾 Foodsafe: This container is foodsafe for dry goods but avoid wet or damp foods such as cheese or butter.
☔️ Doesn’t take on Water. The walls of this container are 100% solid, so it doesn’t absorb water when washed. It won’t dissolve either!
❄️ Fine in Freezers and Fridges: The container is fantastic for storing food in fridges and freezers.
