We are The Glass Company!
Shortly after becoming homeowners we soon discovered the inconvenience of glass recycling. Neither of us wanted to make the trip dealing with leaking boxes, dirty overflowing bottle banks and broken glass. As the glass boxes were becoming too heavy and the chore unachievable for our aging parent’s we often ended up with double the amount to dispose of.
In a society where people are conscience of the planets sustainability more and more glass is used for packaging, storage and reusable items. However, the recycling rates of glass aren’t keeping up. The average family uses 500 glass bottles and jars every year, yet 5 out of 6 are thrown away and not recycled – purely out of inconvenience!
This is where The Glass Company was born!
