The need to become eco-friendly has never been more urgent and thankfully plenty of companies are finding ways to go green. Glass tubes, which are endlessly recyclable and reusable, are a fantastic sustainable packaging option for a range of small products. A glass tube is not only convenient, but it is also affordable and environmentally-friendly.
When you choose glass bulk, you will provide customers with a product they can reuse (after cleaning it) while raising awareness of the importance of sustainable products. Read on further to find out why Green Earth is the best supplier of glass tubes for your company’s needs!
What Is Glass Tube Packaging?
Glass tube packaging uses cylindrical glass containers available in different sizes to hold a specific amount of various products. The clear glass tube makes it easier for people to view its contents than, say, opaque plastic tube packaging, which we also carry. Although they may seem small, there is plenty of room to add labels regardless of the size of the glass tubes.
The various glass tubes come with either push-and-turn caps or cork tops to hold the contents of the containers. The push-and-turn caps are child-resistant to prevent curious little hands from opening the tubes with ease. Glass tubes can store some of the following products:
Eyeglass Repair Kits
Reusable Cotton Swabs (often made using silicone and a popular sustainable item)
And Much More!
Different brands across various industries purchase our recyclable glass tubes in bulk thanks to their ability to store the aroma and preserve the freshness of whatever they hold. But for non-perishable items, their airtight features help to keep products contaminate-free. Glass tubes are just one of a few environmentally-friendly tube packaging options in our collection.
What Glass Tube Styles Are Available?
You can buy glass tube packaging in one of the two styles available below:
Glass Tubes With Cork Tops
This style of glass tubes combines the simplicity of a glass container but with an earthy vibe of a cork top. Our glass tubes with cork tops can hold products up to approximately 105mm long; while the tube without the cork is 120mm tall, the cork top descends into the tube about 15mm.
If you plan to add a label, the max size is 70mm x 105mm. The cylindrical shape of our glass tube packaging is sturdy, enticing, timeless, and portable.
Glass Tubes With Push-and-Turn Caps:
Available in three sizes, this glass tube can come with ribbed plastic or smooth wood print push-and-turn caps, which emulates the earthy vibe of the cork tops but adds the child-resistant safety element. Here’s a look at each of the sizes these tubes come in:
79mm: The total length of these glass tubes is about 80 mm, but they can hold 79mm long products. The max label size is 70mm x 57mm.
97mm: If you want something slightly bigger, the 97mm is available with a max label size of 70mm x 75mm.
115mm: The biggest size glass tubes available have a length of 120mm and can hold up to 115mm of content. The max label size is 70mm x 97mm.
Whichever glass tube works for your products, we’ll work alongside you to bring your customization dreams to life.
