to reuse waste from paper-based siliconized liners, which is processed
and turned into new cellulose.

in violationof traditional rights and indigenouspeoples.
The recycling concept also guides our packaging choices: for which we use ecological materials.
The dark bottles we use are made from at least 50% recycled glass. Glass can be recycled without changing its quality.
Even design of our products so to make them reusable. Alexander blown glass bottles are unique decorative elements, grappa Vapore bottles can be used at home as carafes for serving water or other drinks.
