      Lower Carbon Footprint

      A refillable 12oz glass bottle has a 95% lower carbon footprint than single use 12oz glass bottle. Latin America and European Carbon Footprint data from the Owens-Illinois The Complete Life Cycle Assessment Report.

      Less Water

      In Germany, for every 200 500ml bottles of beer delivered, the washing process for refillable 500ml bottles making 50 trips uses 82% less water than is needed for 12oz one-way bottles delivering the same amount of beverage. Based on data from Case Reopened: Reassessing Refillable Bottles by David Saphire.

      Less Energy

      A study of the Canada’s Ontario Liquor Board estimates that washing a ton of refillable bottles (4,000 12oz bottles) uses 97 percent less energy than is needed to manufacture a ton of glass. Based on data from Case Reopened: Reassessing Refillable Bottles by David Saphire.
