|Eco Info||When glass is recycled, it is broken into small pieces called cullet. The broken pieces are crushed, sorted, cleaned, and mixed with other raw materials in the glass-making process. When glass is made from scratch, high temperatures are needed to melt all the ingredients. Since cullet melts at a lower temperature, the more of it you add to the process, the less energy required to melt it.
Recycling glass is not only energy-efficient; it benefits the environment in other ways. Glass produced from recycled glass instead of raw materials reduces related air pollution by 20% and related water pollution by 50%. And, recycling glass keeps used bottles and jars out of landfills, thereby decreasing the need for them.
|Please Note:||Due to their recycled nature, perfection and exact uniformity may escape our hand blown and recycled glass products. But what they lack here, they make up for with charm and individuality. Expect slight product variations in shape, size and color, as well as quirks like small bubbles suspended in the glass.|
