Break the glass habit

Break the glass habit

Break the habit of using glass labware and take advantage of the benefits of plastic. Plastic containers are shatterproof, lighter weight than glass, and less likely to break, which requires an expensive replacement. Make your lab a safer place and stretch your budget. Break the glass habit, switch to plastic.
