Choose Glass and Metal

What’s GLAME?

Sustainability – and how to give it a bigger platform with both customers and the public at large – has long been a big topic at Silgan Closures. The answer? GLAME.

GLAME is a compound of the words glass and metal and embodies the conscious decision for sustainable consumerism.

Glas in combination with metal has many benefits, for the producers as well as the consumer. GLAME stands for a greener and more sustainable future, starting today.

From thinking to acting sustainable

„Sustainability“ has become an often-used buzzword over the last few years. For some, it has even become a lifestyle. However, with only some small adjustments to our daily routine, we can turn sustainability from a buzzword to a reality. Our aim is to motivate others with our campaign - and to show how small adjustments can create real change.

Sustainability is fun!

Thanks to the efforts of trade and commerce, sustainability rarely means you have to sacrifice comfort these days. Grocery stores are filled to the brim with sustainable products and alternatives to plastic. Thus, making the sustainable choice becomes easier and easier each day.
