Where are the 2-Quart Plastic Jars?

OK, it is that time of the year again when the weather outside gets frightful and the FED EX trucks inside are NOT delightful! In other words, you might have ordered a two-quart plastic jar of activated charcoal from us that we shipped you in a perfect, cylinder jar and it arrives looking like a truck ran over it! What is happening is that when it gets really cold, like sitting in a FED EX trailer in sub-zero weather, the charcoal pulls the oxygen in the jar which causes the jar to twist and bend, and then it releases it but the jar does not relax to its former shape, it just looks like a truck ran over it.  We are waiting on new jars that should not do this so easily, but in the meantime, we are only offering the two-quart GLASS jar.  We apologize for this temporary inconvenience, Happy Winter!
