Recycling: Why glass always has a happy CO2 ending.
You know there is a direct link between recycling and reducing our carbon footprint. You also probably know that glass recycling has many positive environmental and societal benefits. But you might be surprised to learn how effectively glass recycling reduces CO2 . This is the eternal story of glass and CO2 . Glass bottles are made in a closed-loop recycling system. Bottles which have been used by consumers are collected and re-melted in a glass furnace to produce new bottles. This action can be repeated over and over again as the glass never loses its quality. CO2 savings from recycling glass occur both at the glass plant, and all along the supply chain. Recycling glass containers minimises waste, preserves natural resources, reduces energy use and creates jobs in the recycling industry.
