Many manufacturers of consumer-products like toiletries, cosmetic, syrups and medicines etc still use breakable glass containers and inconvenient tin-tubes for packing. Glass containers cause loss of commodity on being accidently broken and much of the product packed in tin-tubes is left unused at the end while product can be easily squeezed completely from tubes made of squeezable polymer compound.
Also glass and tin containers often cause cuts in body-parts. Union Ministry of Consumer Affairs should ensure compulsory replacement of glass and tin containers by packs made of suitable polymer compound. Exemption may be granted in case product is liable to be reacted if packed in polymer packing.
