Did You Know

Glass cookware and food storage containers, including brands like Pyrex and Corningware, are made from borosilicate glass. This type of glass blend has a higher melting point and is NOT easily recycled through traditional methods. This type of glassware can contaminate other glass recyclables, so it's best to place it in the garbage if it cannot be reused.
