Recycling has always been at the heart of our business.  

We aim to produce our 100% recyclable glass products with zero impact on the environment, assuring that the next generations can live in a better world. We do this by applying sustainable processes throughout the organization and supporting social, economic, and cultural progress in the communities where we live and work.
