Three Ways Glass Can Help You Reduce Waste

Three Ways Glass Can Help You Reduce Waste

If you haven’t heard yet, 1st-7th September is Zero Waste Week, which is all about doing your bit for the planet we all live in and even saving some money by doing so. In its seventh year, the campaign is asking consumers what is ‘one more thing’ you could do to help reduce your landfill waste?

Here at Friends of Glass, we think that choosing glass is the obvious answer, and here is why:

1.Glass Helps to Keep Your Food Fresher for Longer

Jam and preserve makers throughout the generations have known that there’s only one choice when it comes to storing their creations, and that’s glass. Whether storing snacks or leftovers, you simply can’t beat glass bottles and jars when it comes to keeping food fresher for longer.

2.Glass is endlessly recyclable

Glass lovers know that when they choose glass they are taking a positive stand for the environment. Even when a glass bottle reaches the end of its life, it is 100% recyclable as it can be melted down and used to produce more glass products. This makes glass one of the most eco-friendly materials available.

3.Glass Encourages Creative Upcycling

From cakes and pies baked in glass jars, creative storage solutions, homemade gifts ideas to photo frames and tea light lanterns – glass jars and bottles can be reused around the house in so many ways.
