Green Credentials

We recycle as much glass as possible — almost 100% of our waste glass is recycled! The only glass we are currently unable to recycle is fire resistant glass.

Any waste toughened glass is often donated to a local crafting concern, where glass is cleverly upcycled to create unique glass bowls and unusual gifts —

We promote products that help reduce energy consumption, CO2 emissions and the use of harsh chemicals:

  • EnduroShield — we are able to coat many types of glass with EnduroShield — an environmentally friendly protective coating for glass, reducing the need for cleaning glass with harsh chemicals.
  • Planitherm/Low E — a coating applied to glass designed to prevent heat escaping through glass, reducing energy consumption.
  • Double glazed sealed units — their excellent insulating properties reduce CO2 emissions and energy consumption.
  • Argon gas — increases the insulating properties of double glazing helping to reduce energy consumption.
