About glass

Why glass?

Glass protects the product

(protecting the content from humidity and oxygen).

Glass protects humans

Glass protects environment

It can be recycled 100%.
Energy consumption is reduced by using recycled glass in production.

Why choose glass packaging?

Glass packaging offers undeniable advantages. It stands out as a sustainable choice, being completely recyclable without any limitations, while also offering the potential for reuse and refilling. With its inert nature and absence of synthetic chemicals, glass ensures the safe storage of food and beverages.

Additionally, its aesthetic appeal and iconic status make it highly favoured by consumers.

Glass is derived from abundant natural ingredients, including sand, soda ash, limestone, and recycled glass. These components undergo a unique alchemical process that produces a remarkable material cherished by people worldwide. It is noteworthy that glass requires no additional materials or chemical layers to achieve its final form.

Glass is 100% recyclable

Glass is entirely recyclable, and its recycling process is characterized by the absence of quality or purity degradation. It represents a closed-loop system, meaning that no extra waste or by-products are generated during the recycling process. Glass stands as a rare example where the same material can be recycled repeatedly without any loss in its original quality.

Glass bottles and jars have the added benefit of being reusable and refillable before eventually being recycled into new containers. This aspect positions glass as the primary choice for consumers of food and beverages globally, especially in local markets. By reusing glass bottles, the overall environmental impact is reduced, and when combined with recyclable solutions, it significantly enhances the sustainable value of glass packaging.
