For a world free of plastic pollution
Plastic pollution within our oceans becomes more and more urgent.Every minute, vast quantities of plastic find their way into these waters. Annually, this equates to a harrowing 12 million tonnes. The result? 100 million marine lives lost to plastic waste. Plastic bottles, once a symbol of convenience, now represent a 450-year environmental nightmare. By 2050, without action, our oceans risk being more plastic than fish. Southeast Asia stands at the forefront of this crisis. This isn’t just about marine life; it’s our planet’s ecological balance at stake. In our modern world, with its plastic dependency, the challenge is enormous. We must act, and swiftly.
Glassic tackles the problem by replacing single use plastic bottles with high-quality reusable glass bottles made for over 200 product cycles.
