Packaging made of glass is a popular choice, especially for food products, because glass protects sensitive products where quality is important. Moreover, glass packaging can be recycled again and again into new glass packaging. Provided that consumers collect the used packaging separated by color in the glass container and the design of the packaging is right. Experts from Nestlé Germany and Der Grüne Punkt are taking a look at how this all works in a state-of-the-art sorting facility for used glass packaging in Germany.

The climate and energy turnaround also includes a raw materials turnaround. This means: no longer wasting raw materials, but using them - again and again. We achieve this goal with closed-loop recycling, sustainable packaging design and the constant reuse of our raw materials. For a better climate and the careful use of resources (unfortunately only available in German).
