Closing the Loop around the world – CGL Annual Event

On 30 June we celebrated Close the Glass Loop's 2. anniversary and the International Year of Glass!

To mark the International Year of Glass, this year Close the Glass Loop’s annual event showcased the global dimension of glass collection and recycling.

Our keynote guest was Dr Janez Potocnik, Co-Chair of UNEP International Resource Panel and former EU Commissioner for Environment, with a speech focusing on the global circular economy.

The event also featured inspiring case studies of glass collection and recycling from Kosovo, Kenia and Central America. Our National Partners were present at the event as well, presenting their activities in the virtual booths.

Last but not least, we presented the 2020 Glass Collection for Recycling Statistics!
