Mexico’s Largest Glass Manufacturer Committed to SustainablityBy
Vitro, Mexico’s largest glass company, collected over 181,000 tons of recyclable glass in 2010, an 19% increase over the previous year. By recycling the 181,000 tons, the company saved 363,000 cubic meters of land which otherwise would have been use for landfill. What is especially noteworthy of Vitro’s efforts is the way in which the company coordinates it’s collection efforts with the social communities in which it operates. For instance, in 2010 Vitro implemented 172 social campaigns for family and occupational health; benefiting more than 29,300 people in the cities where the company has a presence.
