Brussels, November 18, 2021.
The glass hallmark is a trademarked communication tool designed by the industry to promote the “recyclability” and “inertness” qualities of glass as a material. It represents the ability of the container glass on which the mark is put to be recycled and to optimally preserve the content as a result of its inert nature. It can be used on every glass container irrespective of the way in which this glass container was manufactured, unless in a way that prevents the glass container concerned to be recyclable.
As of November 2021, the secretariat and administrative function for ‘Glass Hallmark’ is run through FEVE – the European Container Glass Federation (hereinafter referred to as “FEVE” or “we, us”).
