Water & Juice Glasses
Glass is made from abundant raw materials such as sand, soda ash, and limestone that are melted and can be formed into water and juice glasses. While glass has a low environmental impact at its production stage, it is not accepted by municipal recycling programs once broken. This means it is important to consider the durability of glassware and each company’s efforts to minimize its environmental footprint in other ways. The most sustainable products will be made of pure glass, preferably 100% recycled materials, but if you need more durability look for crystal glass made with zirconium.
