Why You Should Recycle
The production and use of glass has a number of environmental impacts.
New glass is made from four main ingredients: sand, soda ash, limestone and other additives for colour or special treatments. Although there is no shortage of these raw materials as yet, they all have to be quarried, which can damage the landscape, affect the environment and use more energy.
Glass is 100% recyclable and can be endlessly reprocessed with no loss of quality. Therefore by simply recycling our glass we can:conserve non-renewable fossil fuels reduce the emission of harmful gasses into the atmosphere.
How is it recycled?
Glass can be collected in bottle banks or as part of your kerbside collection. However, there is still more we can all do, such as remembering to recycle our clear jars (pasta sauce jars and jam jars) which are often forgotten.
The UK business sector still has a lot of work to do to recycle glass – bars, restaurants and pubs currently throw away over 200,000 tonnes of glass every year into landfill.
Once glass is collected and taken to be reprocessed, it is:
crushed and contaminants removed (mechanised colour sorting is usually undertaken at this stage if required) mixed with the raw materials to colour and/or enhance properties as necessary melted in a furnace moulded or blown into new bottles or jars.
At Atlantis Spring Water we always strive to make sure every bottle is made in an ethical and environmentally friendly way. All our raw materials are sourced from local companies within the UK. Both our glass and plastic bottles (and PET caps) are 100% recyclable and we are currently investing in new technology to produce a new range of bottles made solely from recycled material. We currently offer an ECO bottle which uses 25% less PET than a standard bottle and has biodegradable labels. All our bottles are 100% BPA free..
