The State of Texas Alliance for Recycling (STAR) hosted a workshop on November 13, 2019 in Austin, to dig into the current challenges, looming barriers, and potential solutions for increasing end-markets and the circulation of glass in Texas.

Conscious Container was invited to present our California and Nevada refillable glass program and how a refillable glass program could work in Texas. Conscious Container was joined by other insightful presentations given throughout the day by representatives from O-I, Strategic Materials, FCC Environmental Services, Independent Texas Recyclers, Pratt Industries, and End of Waste Foundation.

STAR is proud to help generate conversations and gather the data and people needed to advance material circulation in Texas, and beyond, by hosting workshops that bring together multiple stakeholders. The Texas Glass Recycling Workshop, as well as the other workshops and webinars STAR hosts and supports, advance STAR’s mission to advance recycling through partnerships, education, and advocacy for the benefit of Texas.

We were thrilled to share how refillable glass bottle systems are a vital part of reducing single use packaging waste across the United States.
