Make a Difference
Presently, there is a global crisis with plastic pollution and a huge portion of that pollution can be attributed to plastic packaging.

 

Quantum is proud of our commitment to helping glassmakers keep glass as the best packaging choice.  Our mission is to solve container forming problems, which in turn will allow glassmakers to reduce the overall cost of production, thus making glass more competitive with alternative packaging materials.

 

Glass has a number of different qualities that make it the best choice for a packaging material, but perhaps none more important than its sustainability and reduced impact on the environment.  Glass is 100% recyclable and can be recycled endlessly with no loss in quality or purity. Glass recycling is a closed loop system, creating no additional waste or by-products.
Did You Know That?
  • Americans use 2.5 million plastic bottles every hour.
  • It is estimated that over 80% of all single-use water bottles used in the U.S. simply become "litter."
  • For every six plastic bottles bought, only one is recycled - five are thrown away to eventually end up in landfills, or the ocean.
  • While plastics can indeed be recycled, they degrade in quality through the recycling process, until eventually plastics can't be recycled and have to be taken to landfills.
  • 90% of the trash in the ocean is from plastic.
  • One million sea birds
    and 100,000 marine mammals are killed annually from plastic in our oceans.
  • Bottles used to package water take over 1,000 years to bio-degrade and if incinerated, they produce toxic fumes.
  • Ten percent of the plastic manufactured worldwide ends up in the ocean, the majority of that settling on the ocean floor where it will never degrade.
