Sustainability and ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) topics are at the heart of Zignago Vetro, which sees in the main characteristic of glass, the ability to be completely recycled for an infinite number of times, the engine of a solid circular economy.
Glass: a sustainable raw material.
The characteristics of glass have no equals: glass is hygienic, healthy, eco-friendly, recyclable and safe. An ancient material yet perfectly contemporary, made of recycled glass, sand, sodium and calcium carbonates and other elements, all of which are 100% natural materials. Given the sustainability of the glass raw material, even the products of the same material can take part in the recycling chain, reducing the amount of virgin raw materials and reducing the emissions.
Glass is chemically and biologically inert, with a consequential absence of reactions with the substances that it contains and without the release of hazardous chemical substances; glass can also be easily sterilized and sanitized.
Glass is the only material that perfectly preserves the original flavour of foods and drinks without altering the content. Thanks to its structure, it is a perfect barrier against gases from both outside-in and vice-versa; it also makes it possible to protect foods from external factors, like UV rays, light, and sudden climatic changes.
Thanks to its intrinsic qualities, glass makes it possible to easily see the colour and consistency of the contents. Moreover, glass packaging has a peerless appeal in terms of quality, sensory perception, and aesthetic design, capable of creating a unique consumer experience.
Glass is in harmony with nature and makes it possible to protect natural resources. Glass does not dissolve into microparticles that are dangerous for the eco-system and can be used an infinite number of times: a glass container always gives rise to another glass container, with the same characteristics and qualities of the previous one.
