The benefits of glass packaging are clear: glass is made from natural materials; it’s sustainable (being 100% recyclable and reusable); it’s safe for preserving food and beverages; and it protects people’s health.
Glass is recyclable and protects the integrity of the product inside. In short, it’s the kindest choice for the planet – and it’s the packaging choice that people already love.
Glass is made from sand, soda, ash, and limestone (plus recycled glass!) – all raw materials that are abundant in nature. These material are melted at high temperatures and then turned into new glass containers.
Glass is a permanent material that can be endlessly reused and recycled. Choosing and recycling glass helps reduce waste, conserves natural resources, lowers energy consumption, reduces CO2 emissions, and protects the planet and its wildlife.
Glass is a virtually inert material that prevents any transfer of flavours and preserves the taste, odour, colour, and texture of products. Glass preserves the products quality for longer, even after opening.
Thanks to its inherent properties, glass forms a complete barrier against external agents, safely preserving products and protecting consumer’s health.
