HOW IT WORKS
WHY REFILLABLE GLASS?
Reduces single-use packaging waste and costs producers considerably less
Refillables have a 95% lower carbon footprint, use much less water, and requires significantly less energy than the production of single-use bottles!
Growing consumer participation and a unique marketing differentiator
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.
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.
A study of the Canada’s Ontario Liquor Board estimates that washing a ton of refillable bottles (4,000 12oz bottles) uses 92 percent less energy than is needed to manufacture a ton of glass. Based on data from Case Reopened: Reassessing Refillable Bottles by David Saphire.
To deliver an environmentally and economically viable refillable glass bottle system to reduce our single use packaging waste challenge while reducing producer’s packaging costs and CO2 impact.
