The Glass Packaging Forum teams up with Hospitality New Zealand

5 Nov 2018

Did you know that glass is infinitely recyclable? That means that this resource can be recycled an indefinite number of times, saving virgin materials used to make it such as sand. Since recycled glass can be made at a lower temperature than new glass, recycled glass also reduces the impact of production on the environment. It is important to save our resources and environment, and a small measure like recycling can help us as a community to do so.


The Glass Packaging Forum is a New Zealand-based organisation which works to encourage businesses to recycle their glass packaging, as well as providing resources to help them to do so.


The forum is working collaboratively with Hospitality New Zealand and its 3,000 members to help promote sustainability in the hospitality sector. The forum helps hotels, pubs, restaurants and bars to improve their glass recycling. The support provided by GPF includes help with access, volume, bins and colour sorting.


 



So far, GPF have provided over $2 million in funds to promote and facilitate glass recycling across the country.


Glass is a more sustainable packaging option than, for example, plastic. It is 100% recyclable, it is being recycled here in New Zealand, and can also be recycled again and again.


Consider reducing the carbon footprint of your business, and making it more sustainable, by finding out more about recycling glass packaging.
