#LeadFree: Straus Family Creamery Reusable Glass Milk Bottle

Straus Family Creamery (in Marin County, California) managed to do what other creameries have not managed to do somehow… the black paint on their new (2018) reusable glass bottles is negative for lead (Pb) and cadmium (Cd) when tested with an XRF instrument!

The great thing that this demonstrates is that it is actually possible to use a lead-free and cadmium free alternative paints on these bottles – and that begs the question.. if we CAN create bottles with lead-free paint why isn’t everyone doing it?

Here’s a link to other milk bottles that I have tested.

As always, if you have any questions, please let me know!
