The goal for recycling of glass packaging should be roughly double what it is now, according to the new annual report from the Glass Packaging Institute. “North American 2011 Glass Packaging Outlook” sets forth a goal of doubling the recycling rate for glass bottles and jars from 28% in 2008. Doing so, the report says, would allow glass packaging suppliers to increase the amount of recycled glass in their products to 50%, which would greatly improve the carbon footprint of glass packaging. The report also broke down the use of glass for packaging: Beer bottles, at 59% of all glass containers, was the leader, followed by food (18%), non-alcoholic beverages (8%), wine (6%) and liquor (4%).
