The need for stringent quality control in recycling facilities adds another layer of complexity, making the process more intricate compared to other materials.

Why aren't we recycling our glasses?

Why do we need to improve infrastructure, raise awareness, and promote sustainable practices?

So, what does RTG do with glass?

Primarily, we are innovators, and so:

We are exploring applications for use of glass bottles in construction. The transparent beauty of glass bottles, when embedded in walls, creates stunning and functional structures. From homes to community centers, this method not only repurposes glass but also provides a unique aesthetic. Find out more here.

Primarily, we are innovators, and so:

We do R&D of plastic-glass mixtures for construction and other applications.

Primarily, we are innovators, and so:

We repurpose glass bottles into household products like cups, candle holders, and lighting fixtures.

Primarily, we are innovators, but there's only that much we can do!

Outreach and engagement! Reach out if you want us to come down and give y'all a hands-on experience here! .
