THE FUTURE IS REUSE, COLLECTION AND RECYCLING
glassFORever is the environmentally friendly alternative to disposable products, single-use glasses, paper cups and regular glasses.
100% RECYCLING! We take your old glassFORever products back. Then we grind them and make new products.
The requirement for recycling, collection and recycling of plastics is evident and visible to all.
The same applies to ensure that recycling is optimized and takes place based on life cycle considerations and in relation to circular economy.
Areas with a very high concentration of plastic in the oceans as well as huge stocks of plastic on land justify an increased global effort for reuse, collection, and recycling of plastic and at the same time a lower the production of new materials. The environmental impact is global and affects all aspects of nature, including animal and human health. Any effort to collect plastic and recycle / phase out as well as reuse plastic will reduce environmental impacts and benefit biodiversity.
Reports and life cycle assessments (LCA) show that reuse solutions have a significantly lower CO2 footprint than disposable solutions. An LCA screening of reused cups vs. disposable cups from FORCE TECHNOLOGY show that when the reused cups / reused mugs are recycled more than 2.77 times, there is a climate advantage over the disposable cups.
Disposable cups etc. replaced with the reusable cups reduces the environmental impact by 88.9%.
Paper cups for to-go coffee cups have a plastic coating that ensures that they are waterproof. This makes them almost impossible to recycle – and they can only degrade slowly in the natural environment. When they decompose, they will tend to break down into smaller and smaller pieces (microplastics) that will continue to pollute the environment.
Paper cups lined with plastic coating cannot be recycled. The same goes for all biodegradable plastic types - they cannot be recycled.

75% of polled Danes think that cafés and take-aways should provide reusable containers for food and drink. Survey commissioned by Oceana shows that Danes overwhelmingly support the reduction of single-use plastics and champion reusable alternatives. Research also finds that over 90% of interviewees believe disposable plastics should be reduced
The research further concludes that around 130 million disposable coffee cups could be used in Denmark every year.
