The jug is manufactured from HDPE (High Density Polyethylene), which provides toughness, strength, stiffness, and resistance to the chemicals and moisture that it contains. It comes in a natural color that gives you the best view of what you have stored in the container. It has a squared off design, allowing you to set it flush against a flat surface, which reduces the amount of spills and keeps the jug from rolling away. It has a double handle for easy lifting and steady pouring and features a spout extender that creates a secure, leak-free seal. It also features a quarter-inch vent tube that allows air to flow to the bottom and release internal pressure, giving you a smoother, quicker pour. The Utility Jug can be recycled.
