Orora is a strong advocate for the circular economy and an active participant in Australia’s efforts to reduce the impact of product packaging on our environment.
Every year the Orora Gawler team process more than 100,000 tonnes of recycled glass cullet the equivalent of around 500 million bottles.
As a material, Glass is a true leader in the circular economy as it can be recycled endlessly with no loss in quality or purity. By using recycled glass Orora reduces its overall carbon footprint and has a positive impact on the environment.
It’s why Orora continues to be a supporter of container deposit schemes across Australia and welcomes the Victorian and Tasmanian Government’s intention to introduce these schemes in the near term.
