Our plastic hummingbird containers are made from PET plastic. This product is a food grade container that is designed to not break down in hot weather. Below is a statement from the National Association for PET Container Resources describing this type of plastic.
“PET is the type of plastic labeled with the #1 code on or near the bottom of bottles and containers and is commonly used to package soft drinks, water, juice, peanut butter, salad dressings and oil, cosmetics and household cleaners.
PET is a popular package for food and non-food products. Manufacturers use PET plastic to package products because of its strength, thermo-stability and transparency. Customers choose PET because it is inexpensive, lightweight, reseal able, shatter-resistant and recyclable.”
