Ecology Bottle
Ecology Bottle - it’s the ultimate recycling, “Bottle to Bottle” recycling.
The most remarkable feature of glass container recycling is to be able to recycle a used bottle as a new bottle repeatedly, that is, "Bottle to Bottle" recycling. Using crushed glass chips (cullet) reduces CO2 emissions and saves energy and resources. In particular, a glass bottle in which cullet accounts for over 90% of its raw materials is called "Ecology Bottle" in the Japanese industry. For ecology bottles, the quality of cullet directly influences product quality. Toyo Glass has been working actively on improvement of cullet quality in cooperation with cullet suppliers.
"Ecology Bottle Mark" : A bottle certified as an ecology bottle by the Japan Glass Bottle Association is allowed to carry the "Ecology Bottle" mark.
