By the time this timer hits 0, the planet temperature will raise another 1.5 degrees

causing us to hit a critical point that's close to irreversible.

We have to act now to make a difference and you can be the change. 

The United States' Biggest Problem...
The Plastic Epidemic

Plastic production and consumption are predicted to double over the next 10 years.

That means that if we don’t do something now, we could be facing 250 million tons of plastic in the ocean in less than 10 years. We can’t stand by and watch the impacts of this tidal wave of plastic heading our way—neither failure nor inaction is an option. So what are our options?

  • 1. To sit and wait for governments to do something... OR
  • 2. To watch others taking action... OR
  • 3. To take action today and be the wave of change!
Glass is THE Solution!

Glass is the sustainable and 100% recyclable alternative to plastic that will help us end the plastic epidemic in the United States.

Here are some of the benefits why reverting back to glass is the way towards sustainability. 

Benefits of Using Glass over Plastic:

  1. Doesn’t leach BPA (Bisphenol A) into bottled products
  2. Carbon dioxide escapes glass slower than plastic, keeping beverages carbonated for longer
  3. Glass is endlessly recyclable and reusable

Why Recycling Glass is Important:

  1. Glass is the sustainable alternative to plastic and does not have the same capacity to destroy wildlife and pollute water.
  2. Over 6 million tons of glass end up in a landfill each year in the United States. At an average size of 600 acres, US citizens are effectively filling up one landfill per year with just glass!
  3. Recycling glass instead of producing it using raw materials is nearly 70 percent more energy efficient.

The Solution

The End of Waste Foundation is built on the vision of producing a circular economy within the recycling industry, eliminating plastic waste and fostering a revolutionary paradigm of shared responsibility.

Through our platform, we track quantities of glass from bin to bottle, ensuring efficiency and accountability. At each stage of recycling, we’re creating the opportunity to divert glass from landfills and give it new life.

Our system is powered by environmentally conscious businesses and consumers who contribute to the Glass Certificate Program which subsidizes the economic losses incurred by our waste and recycling partners.

Contributors (individuals and organizations alike) receive a certificate that validates the amount of glass saved from landfills and how much CO2 has been diverted from entering the atmosphere.

“It inspires confidence in the form of the public knowing their glass is getting recycled. It drives awareness as well. It might inspire others to recycle. When that reward, feedback system to the consumer is available evidence shows participation is going to go up."
