GLASSWARE. PROS AND CONS

Super Pouch VS Glassware

For centuries, the drinks manufacturers in different counties worldwide have been giving their preference to the glassware. We could go on forever enumerating the types of products in it: from whiskey bottles to baby food jars.

It has become a part of human experience. We have well engraved in our minds that if the product is in glassware, it is more expensive and, consequently, of a better quality. In addition, such product seems to the consumer elite and elegant, inspiring a sense of luxury due to the delicate texture, pleasant tactile sensations and external attractiveness. Consumers are willing to spend a lot of money on fine glass bottles of mineral water, because it is widely believed that it gives the impression of rather high social standing.

Although the aesthetic appearance is a popular reason for the use of glassware, many consumers choose it for a completely different reason. People become increasingly focused on sustainable development, waste sorting and recycling, environmental responsibility. People choose the glassware deliberately, because they often see the horrible images with plastics and polyethylene pollution of the forests, beaches, oceans in the news.

Glassware is 100% recyclable. However, the consumer has to remember that much glass is still not thrown away in specially designated areas. The growing importance of the glassware use in the world focused on sustainability is partially a result of misinformation. 

The ugly truth about glass, based on a number of scientific researches, is that it is no less harmful to the environment than plastic or polyethylene.  Glass manufacturing is a highly energy-intensive industrial process.

The container and flat glass industries (which combined account for 80% of glass production) emit over 60 million tonne of CO2 emissions per year, which is more than the annual emissions from the country of Portugal (Ali Hasanbeigi, Ph.D., June 2018, Global Efficiency Intelligence).
