Many people are making an effort to avoid plastic, especially in contact with food. I have a blender attachment for my Bosch and it's quite powerful but I've gone back to my old Oster because it has a glass pitcher. I would dearly love to have a Vita-Mix but I won't purchase one unless/until they offer the stainless steel pitcher again.
I'm not the only one. Beth Terry, author of Plastic-Free: How I Kicked the Plastic Habit and How You Can Too has been in contact with the Vita-Mix company and we now have a petition. Let's show Vita-Mix how many would like to see them offer the stainless steel pitcher again.
Please sign the petition!
