Recycling Bottles

All our plastic and glass containers are recyclable.

Our glass containers are approximately 20% recycled glass. It takes 1200°C to melt and mould glass, so any contaminants are removed by the heat.

Plastic is usually recycled into a mixture of all plastics, and is used with a carbon additive to make plant pots or extruded to produce synthetic timber.

PET can be isolated and recycled into new bottles but these are only used for cleaning products and chemicals. It is NOT possible to guarantee the removal of all contaminants in these products.
