TGP supports the environment

OUR PRODUCTS

Our FireLite® products are made with recycled and reclaimed glass (cullet). The use of cullet helps reduce the amount of energy needed to produce the new batch of glass.

Glass is one of the few materials that can be continuously recycled.

Our packaging uses recycled corrugated cardboard packing materials whenever possible vs. timber or plastic crating. We recycle 100% of our steel cut-offs.
