Glass is 100%, infinitely recyclable. Once a glass container is made, it can be endlessly remade into another glass container.
Recycled glass (cullet) reduces the greenhouse gas, CO2. For every six tons of glass that is recycled, over one ton of CO2 is saved. Once Halo Glass Recycling is fully operational over 45,000 tons of CO2 will be saved per year.
Another benefit to using cullet is that it requires less energy to melt than the virgin raw materials. Increasing cullet use by 10% saves approximately 3% of energy.
Recycling glass reduces the amount of material going into landfills.
