Did You Know that a glass bottle can take up to 1 million years to decompose?
Glass takes a very, very long time to break down. It can take a glass bottle more than a million years to decompose in the environment, possibly even more if it’s in a landfill. This means that glass manufactured and used 5000 years ago may still be present in the environment. Because its life cycle is so long, and because glass doesn’t leach any chemicals, it’s better to repurpose and reuse it over and over again before recycling it.Because glass is nonporous and impermeable, there are no interactions between glass packaging and the products inside, resulting in no nasty after taste – ever. Plus, glass has an almost zero rate of chemical interactions, which ensures that the products inside a glass bottle keep their flavor, strength and aroma.
Glass is 100% recyclable. Better yet, it’s infinitely recyclable—meaning it can be transformed into a new product again and again without any loss in quality. Recycling glass is thus an effective way to combat many of its environmental woes; It reduces emissions, saves precious natural materials, and saves energy.
