5 Benefits of Using Recycled Glass Bottles When You Sell Direct-to-Consumer Drinks

If you sell organic juice, iced tea, kombucha, or any other direct-to-consumer drinks, you should consider using recyclable glass bottles to package your wears. There are countless advantages of this type of packaging. Here's a look at the top five.

1. Environmental Benefits

When you use recyclable glass bottles, you minimise the environmental impact of your product. You don't have to worry about new materials being sourced to make the bottles, and when customers are done with the bottles, they don't have to go rot in a landfill. Instead, they can be recycled and made into new glass bottles. 

2. Business Benefits

Making the most environmentally friendly choice doesn't just help the planet. It also helps your business. Corporate social responsibility is extremely important to businesses these days. Your clients want to know where the product comes from. They also want to support businesses that are committed to making positive changes in the world. As a result, they look fondly on things such as using recyclable bottles.

3. Health Benefits

When you use glass bottles, you don't have to worry about any materials or toxins leaching into the liquid you are selling. With plastic, that is not the case. Over time, plastic bottles start to break down, and the toxins can get into the drink. That effect is even more pronounced if your customers wash out the bottles and reuse them for water or other drinks. You can use glass endlessly without any degradation.

4. Potential Customer Savings

If you like, you can set up your recyclable glass bottles so that your customers can save a bit of money. For instance, you could charge a small fee for the bottle, or you could work that fee into the cost of your drinks. Then, when customers return the bottles to you, you can give them a discount on their new drinks, or you can return the bottle deposit to them. Both options add value for your clients.

5. Potential Business Savings

With recyclable glass bottles, you have a few different options. You can buy recycled bottles from a manufacturing company. That can sometimes be less expensive than buying brand new bottles. Then, you can send old bottles to the recycling.

Alternatively, you can use a customer exchange system as detailed in the section above. With that option, you save money on the bottles because you buy them once and reuse them endlessly.

Hello, my name Peter and this is my processing and manufacturing blog. I live in Melbourne with my wife and our two kids. I have always been interested processing and manufacturing. Have you ever wandered around a supermarket or shopping centre and looked at all the goods on display? Many people never stop to think about how the goods go from being raw materials to sitting on the shelves of shops. I decided to find out. I spent 7 weeks at my uncles processing and manufacturing plant. It was the best time of my life. I decided to start this blog to pass on what I have learnt.
