Recyling Pyrex Cookware

Thank you. It sounds as if it is safe to recycle the new soda-lime Pyrex cookware. I am concerned about the soda-lime products and would rather dump them in the recycling bin than risk someone getting injured from use of this product.

Pound for pound glass is

Pound for pound glass is significantly better, as it's impact index is almost 9 times smaller. However, I weighted some bottles. A plastic bottle holding 500 ml weighted about 20 grams, while a 330 ml glass bottle was about 200 grams. From that, you can conclude if you want to hold 1000 ml of water, you would be better of with plastic.

Glass vs plastic

@ andrzejc , did you take into consideration enviroment impact of transporting glass vs plastic? Also, could you tell me is it possible for glass to leach chemicals when heated ( microwave, hot car) like plastic does? Your response is greatly appreciated . Thank you for this post ! Ginny
