Glass Loves Nature

We were dismayed to read that the beauty of the Maldives is being affected by 400 tonnes of rubbish being dumped on the island every day. Filmmaker Alison Teal has recently collected images and footage to document the waste problem, which is attributed to the 3.5kg of waste each visitor generates per day.

LET’S ALL RECYCLE FOR A BETTER FUTURE – UNIVERSITIES HELP STUDENTS MAKE THE GRADE ON RECYCLING

We all know that the great benefit of glass is that it is 100% recyclable and does not harm the environment, helping make a more sustainable future. With this in mind, we were very disappointed to learn that a recent YouGov poll of 2,500 people in the UK found that only 57% of 18-24 year olds considered it very important to recycle as much as possible.

Why glass milk bottles still have a place on the doorstep

We were saddened to hear Dairy Crest's announcement last week that they will be closing the company’s last glass milk bottle plant. While the move highlights the pressure to reduce costs, we wondered at the wisdom of this decision.

Perfect match: Jam Jars & Flowers

Here at Friends of Glass we love to make new friends and we’ve recently come across JamJarFlowers.co.uk, a team of bespoke London florists with real creative flair. Using gorgeous glass jars and bottles as an alternative to traditional vases, they display flowers in an impressive way (and we all know that flowers look beautiful when displayed in anything glass).

Colourful Approach Brings Glass Recycling Success

As all our Friends of Glass know, 100 per cent recyclability is one of the brilliant benefits of glass and we are always happy to hear about companies who are helping ensure more of it gets recycled every day.

Friends of Glass invites you to Look Beyond the Label

It’s easy to forget that there’s more to your food than ingredients. At Friends of Glass, our goal is to encourage people to think more about - not just what’s in their food – but what’s outside it as well.
