Glass 4 good

Inspiring and improving the communities where we operate.

In response to growing demand for recycled glass, O-I has created Glass4Good™ Recycling, a community-based recycling program that incentivizes glass recycling by enhancing local recycling infrastructure with the potential of generating local charitable donations in the communities where O-I employees live and work. Glass4Good™ Recycling includes exploring public-private partnerships to overcome barriers to glass recycling in the communities where we operate, and to get glass packaging back into the circular economy.

As engaged and active members of the neighborhoods where we live and work, Glass4Good™ promotes the well-being of the whole community through direct support, volunteerism, and other areas of need.
