The Problem

Plastic pollution is one of the most pressing global issues affecting the environment, wildlife, climate and human health. What is equally as appalling is the amount of plastic that ends up in our oceans. To grasp the extent of this matter, here are some facts:

  • Twelve million tons of plastic are poured into the ocean annually. This is equivalent to one garbage truck of plastic every minute.
  • Plastic bottles can last for 450 years in the marine environment.
  • 100 million marine animals die annually from plastic waste alone
  • Research states that without immense action, there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean by 2050.

Asia contributes more to plastic pollution than the rest of the world. Thus, it is important to tackle this problem at its root.

Our project adresses the following Sustainable Development Goals :

The Solution

Glassic built up a circular beverage startup in Thailand, replacing single-use plastic bottles with reusable glass bottles made for over 200 cycles. This way, we avoid the use of plastic and reduce carbon dioxide emissions. Our water is sourced from a local spring, mineralized, poured into our reusable glass bottle and sold to business customers in the gastronomy and hotel industry. By selling directly to business customers, we ensure full circularity as our water is consumed directly at the customer’s location. This makes it easy to collect the empty bottles for cleaning and refill.

Milestones

  • Established local partners
  • Commenced work on production facility.
  • Secured funding for development of glass bottles and crates and transportation to site.
