Consol Glass is passionate about glass, with the little clink you hear when two glasses meet, and with how its versatility never fails to surprise us. And after more than 70 years of making glass in a variety of shapes, colours and sizes, there’s no sign of that ever changing. After all, the best things come in glass.
Sturdy, timeless, beautiful, trendy, infinitely recyclable and whose form is only limited, quite literally, by our imagination, glass is special in a way that no other packaging is. No matter the shape of the bottle or jar, it not only preserves but accentuates the things you store in it. Have you ever heard that drinking out of glass just tastes better? Well, it’s true.
Consol uses up to 70% recycled glass in their manufacturing processes, thereby reducing their carbon footprint and contributing to the circular economy.
