With your helped, we achieved the following milestones this year:
By using and re-using our glass bottles, you saved 8.5Mt of CO2e green house gas emmissions.
One tonne of CO2 equivalent emissions is equivalent to the average emissions from 2.1 barrels of oil or 37.8 of the propane cylinders we use on the barbeque at home. It takes about 23.3 seedlings being grown for 10 years to absorb 1 tonne of CO2e gas.
Opting for glass bottles, you saved 0.7Mt of plastic packaging going to landfill.
Only 65% of plastic bottles are recycled. On average, 35% wind up in landfills. 10,000 empty plastic water bottles equals one barrel of oil. A PET (polyethylene terephthalate) will take hundreds of years to degrade.
Thanks to your purchases we have donated 1% of sales through our 1% programme to various charities.
