Ardagh Glass Packaging has manufactured 100% recyclable glass bottles for mineral water brand Splendor Water.
The bottles were previously plastic, while the new indigo-coloured glass material is intended to increase the water’s level of preservation. The product is available in 350ml and 750ml bottles.
Glass is a sustainable material and also ideal for reuse – glass bottles can be repurposed for a variety of uses to reduce waste.
However, there is currently a global shortage of glass material due to increasing demand. An industry spokesperson recently told Packaging Gateway that “We are of course clearly noticing the trend away from plastic packaging towards container glass. As a result, capacities are becoming scarcer and prices are higher for our industry.”
Ardagh Glass Packaging vice president for beer and beverage Rashmi Markan commented: “We enjoy collaborating with brands such as Splendor Water to launch products in 100% recyclable glass packaging.”
