GLASS HAS A GREEN AND ETERNAL SOUL, TO PROTECT OUR FUTURE 

Cugher supports the glass industry and the campaign Gimav/Vitrum #GlassIsTheAnswer 

Glass, green and 100% recyclable, maintaining its properties unchanged over time, is the ultimate material symbol of circular economy. It is an inert material, that is, it does not contaminate and does not impact on the surrounding environment, contributing through its reuse to reduce CO2 emissions and to considerably reduce the energy and water consumption and costs.

Glass is leading, not only for its green soul, but also for its high functionality, especially at a time when hygiene standards enhance their absolute values: extremely hygienic, it does not contain any toxic substances. It can be sterilized, ensuring the safety of its content, and does not deteriorate. Sanitization is easy, glass tolerates any type of cleanser and assures a total barrier from bacteria aggression, maintaining itself unaltered over time, even after infinite sanitation processes.

Glass is considered a refined material, but its costs can be limited through the adoption of advanced production practices. It guarantees products of excellence, incomparable security standards, fast production processes absolutely in line with competing materials that have significant lower performances. As a matter of fact, plastic materials degrade over time with the use of cleaning products, no longer guaranteeing the same aesthetics and healthiness characteristics. Not to mention that their production is considerably more polluting and, due to a shortage of raw materials, their production costs are remarkably increasing.

Glass is used in different fields: automotive sector, building and architecture, food, cosmetic and pharmaceutical packaging, personal accessories, and in all recent technological applications. It finds space in our daily life through the most precious objects and it results an everlasting and perfectly efficient investment.

Using glass means thinking about the future of people and the future of the planet.
