Did you know that our glass awards & trophies can be recycled?
We understand how important it is that we play our part in creating sustainable glass awards and trophies that are recyclable and therefore, environmentally friendly . Did you know that all our crystal and glass awards can be recycled? As a result this makes them a great choice for any organisation that wants to reinforce their ethical credentials.
Here at Laser Crystal we regularly get asked about glass recycling for our trophies and corporate gifts. Glass is one of the few materials on our planet that is truly sustainable as nothing goes to waste and it can be recycled time and time again. Consequently each time it’s recycled glass can be recreated as a completely new product! How perfect is that?
How are Glass Awards Made?
Glass is made from natural raw materials. That’s why it’s used in so many applications from drinking glasses, cooking bowls to decorative awards.
Here’s an interesting fact. Glass is actually made from liquid sand. If you heat ordinary sand to a temperature of 1700°C (3090°F) it melts into a liquid glass!
In glass production silica sand, a fine white pure sand, is the main component of glass representing around 70% of its weight. This fine white sand is used because it is very pure and does not contain other unwanted chemicals. Other components are added to this including Soda ash in order to reduce the very high melting temperature of silica, calcium carbonate ( limestone) to give durability and consistency to the glass.
The glass liquid is then made into large blocks and these are then hand cut into different shapes and sizes to make your fabulous awards.
So it really doesn’t get any more sustainable or environmentally friendly then glass awards and trophies.
