Let’s Talk Glass
As concerns for the environment strikes, consumers see glass packaging as an ethical preference. Glass is one of the most sustainable and eco-friendly forms of materials. A Europe-wide survey, conducted in 11 EU countries, revealed that 85% of Europeans would recommend glass to their friends and family. The survey represented an increase of 15% since 2009. These results reassured that consumers have become more conscious of the positive sustainable benefits of glass packaging.
How Can We Reduce Plastic Waste?
Sustainability advocates restrain plastic; therefore, many industries have stopped using them, and replaced them with biodegradable and sustainable materials. It really is that simple. If there is enough demand for change, companies will listen. AROMATICA uses more than 60% of wasted glass to actively practice environmental protection. This practice preserves and restores the planet by reducing the use of raw materials, and contributing to the recycling system. The sustainable movement has spread awareness, and more advocates have banned harmful materials in their purchases.
