    We Are California Pure

    We are California's largest single site user of recycled glass, purchasing over 30% of all glass recycled in the State. Nearly 175,000 tons of glass is recycled and diverted from landfills annually. Each Gallo Glass bottle contains up to 50% recycled glass. From sand and soda ash to limestone and cullet, Gallo Glass sources all of its major raw materials within the state of California.

     

    Why Glass?

    Glass is made from all-natural materials. It is the preferred packaging among consumers who value it for maintaining the purity of the foods and beverages they consume.

    Glass is Infinitely 100% Recyclable

    Even after continual recycling, glass never loses its quality, purity or clarity. Glass bottles go from recycling bin to store shelf in as little as 30 days. Gallo Glass uses an average of 45% post-consumer recycled glass in its bottles.

    Lightweight Bottle Design

    Gallo Glass has developed one of the nation’s lightest wine bottles - just 14 ounces - while maintaining the traditional profile and maximizing shelf presence. Using less glass to make the bottle means less fuel and less carbon emissions.

    Glass is Sustainable

    Gallo Glass is a member of the Glass Recycling Coalition. We have successfully reduced our carbon footprint and air emissions through a number of recycling programs, the utilization of new technologies and the development of innovative new products.

     

    Energy Reduction Goal

    • Increased use of recycled glass cullet
    • Model predictive control furnace design
    • Furnace exhaust heat recovery
    • Compressed air energy audits
    • Increased use of recycled glass cullet

    Where the Glass is Greener... Since 1958

    Gallo Glass, established in 1958, is a state-of-the-art glass manufacturer committed to meeting the needs of its customers, while minimizing its impact on the environment

    Glass Goes the Extra Mile

    Additional environmental success has been achieved through Gallo Glass’s development of a unique product design to allow for more bottles to fit on each truck, thereby using fewer trucks, saving energy and reducing transportation CO₂ greenhouse gas emissions.

    Glass Stays Out of Landfills

    In the past, glass plants did not want to use unsorted post-consumer recycled glass, which was sent to local landfills. Gallo Glass developed an innovative use in its process for this post-consumer recycled glass, known as three-mix cullet, diverting thousands of tons of glass from landfills back into the glass-making process each year.
