Survey: ‘UK shoppers favour glass bottles and jars
Glass packaging – 100% recyclable and non-toxic – is proving to be a hit with shoppers,
according to a new survey by Friends of Glass.
The Europe-wide survey found that 73% of both Europeans and UK shoppers rate glass as the most ocean-friendly beverage packaging, while 83% of Britons (78% Europeans) have noticed a change in their own behaviour recently and pay more attention on the environmental impact of their daily life and actions. The survey also found that 78% of Britons ranked glass as their preferred beverage packaging choice.
Brook Hayes, communications manager at British Glass which manages the Friends of Glass campaign in the UK commented: “People have been shocked by what Blue Planet II revealed about the poor state of our oceans. When we asked respondents what sprung to mind when thinking about the ocean, ‘beautiful’ was one of the most popular words, but so was ‘polluted’. Making a positive choice for glass packaging, which is one of the most sustainable and eco-friendly forms of packaging on the shelves, is one small but significant thing we can all do to take care of our oceans now and in the future.”
