Glass is an amazing substance. It can be recycled over and over again. The good thing about glass recycling is that the glass retains its quality.
The glass used for the SONATA vases is sourced from glass containers. Only glass without any additives is selected for the recycling. The glass can be melted at 40% lower temperatures than a standard production of raw glass, which saves a lot of energy. This recycling process is a beautiful example of sustainability and the “cradle-to-cradle” way of thinking. Imagine how many bottles and glass jars that are used daily around the world. If we were to simply throw them away, the environment would suffer greatly.
Recycled glass reduces the emissions of air and water pollution by respectively 20% and 40% compared to a new glass production. Reducing industrial pollution not only benefits the environment but also the entire ecosystem. The saved energy in recycling 3 bottles only is enough to charge a smartphone battery for one year!Size: 31 cm
