How many times I have drunk a glass of wine, but, I asked myself for the first time: Why the good wine is not bottled in a plastic bottle? I also asked myself why is not the same to drink wine in a glass of glass than in a plastic one? I think that its taste and enjoyment would be very different.
The glass has been the human being’s friend during 7.000 years in his different practices for a healthy and an environmental purpose. This is due to the fact that the glass is the only 100% recyclable container for infinite number of times, it is returnable, it has a lower CO2 presence, it reduces pollution and the raw materials’ exploitation, it does not spoil the food that is on it. In addition, it has exclusive characteristics like purity, impenetrability, versatility, transparency, and beauty.
The Central American Glass Manufacturer (VICAL, its acronyms in Spanish) is located in our country, with a plant in Cartago. This glass manufacturer is planning for this season its 4th edition of its campaign “For a World Clean as Glass”. 85.000 metric tons of glass have been made approximately with this initiative in the country.
This “Eco Logical” concept’s purpose is to make each user to ask himself/herself about the product’s contents, but also about in which material is this product bottled? Part of this campaign is that when a glass container is returned, this one is exhaustively washed to be used again. It is calculated that a glass bottle can be used again from 40 to 60 times. This reduces by 20% the air’s pollution and by 50% of the atmosphere’s pollution, compared to the traditional production.
