Do you remember the times when you sneak up in your granny’s store-room, so that you can have a taste of her dry fruits, special jams or drink a sweet juice made out of fruits? The fun part was when you had to open a bottle or a sealed plastic jar containing the goodies, right? You had to put the jar in the same position as it was before you taste its inside product. And when the old lady would found out what you have done, she would smile and asked you why you did not ask for her to give you the desired jar. And your answer would have been: “It’s much tastier that way!”
Those were the times, but, an interesting thing that I want to point out here is that you must remember the plastic storage jars. These simple jars are probably the most known way to storage different things world wide.
Obviously, they are made out of plastic, this wonderful material that since its appearance changed so many industries and gave people to use it on things that, made out of a different material, would cost a lot more.
The plastic storage jars are made by an industry that has increased its production every year, nowadays being one of the most profitable industries in the world. Funny? Not at all!
It was believed for centuries that the metal industries will never be surpassed in production and their products. Well, it was proven wrong by the plastic industry, which had a huge economical, productivity and culture “boom”. If you analyze the environment you live in, I am sure that you will find even a small plastic thing over there.
If the historic time and the evolution of man has been given a name for each type of metal used – stone age, iron age, can I ask if this is the plastic age?? And what better example should I give in this matter if not the so commonly used plastic jars?
You can find them wherever you may go: on the shelves of the shops, on the desks of the executive chiefs, in the anatomy laboratories in schools, in the storage sites of different companies, in the transports of so many kind of vegetables and fruits. There are even world records that involve these plastic jars.
