WE'RE HERE TO END WASTE We started Glacier to realize the massive impact that waste management can have on climate change and environmental conservation. Today, 50% of recyclables in the US end up in landfill. By increasing recycling, we reduce pollution and conserve natural resources. We also cut down on greenhouse gas emissions by supplying more recycled feedstock for manufacturing and in turn enabling more energy-efficient manufacturing processes.
Glacier's ultimate vision is to drive a circular economy – worth 10 billion tons in global greenhouse gas reductions.
50% US recyclables sent to landfill today
480M Tons of CO2 that can be prevented in 2030 via recycling
20% Global greenhouse gas reduction by transitioning to a circular economy
