Our Glass Bottle

We chose glass as it’s amazing - the most environmentally friendly material available.

Top reasons for using glass:

 

Health benefits

  • Non-toxic - safe to be in contact with food and drink. It doesn’t contain any chemicals.
  • Inert - it won’t react with its content.
  • It doesn’t change the products taste or colour.
  • Transparent and impermeable – you see what you're getting and it’s a durable barrier against everything from weather to bacteria.

Environmental benefits

  • 100% infinitely recyclable – it can be recycled over and over and over again!
  • Sustainable – it’s made using natural, raw materials of sand, soda and limestone
  • And let’s be honest - Everything looks better and tastes better in Glass
 

 

Glass Recycling Cycle

  1. We throw it into a recycle bin
  2. It’s taken from the bin to a glass treatment plant
  3. There it’s sorted by colour and washed to remove impurities
  4. Then it’s crushed, melted and moulded into new products
  5. The glass is then sent back into the chain to be used again
  6. Glass doesn’t degrade through the recycling process, so it can be recycled endlessly

Recycling is an excellent way of saving energy and conserving the environment. 1 recycled glass bottle would save enough energy to power a computer for 25 minutes.
