EXPO Dubai – Launch of glassyclassy.eco bottle
In June 2021, Rotary Slovenia, in partnership with Hrastnik1860, presented the Rotary bottle adijoplastenka.si for drinking healthy Slovenian water from the faucet. Since then, over 12,000 Slovenians have opted for it through the Rotary online store on adijoplastenka.si, which together reduces the waste of bottles in Slovenia by 18 million bottles a year. From each bottle sold, Rotary donates € 1 to charity.
Rotary International in cooperation with Hrastnik1860 and other partners, launched a glassyclassy.eco bottle at the Expo Dubai today, with the possibility of individualization and digitalization of its functions. GlassyClassy.eco will be presented in Slovenia on Monday, April 4, when Rotary will also award a donation from this partnership – medical equipment for Ukraine and funds for training Slovenian experts on CAR-T devices for the treatment of leukaemia.
Peter Čas, CEO of Hrastnik1860, said on this occasion: “I am proud that Hrastnik1860’s glass products can contribute to a greener future in various ways, this time in cooperation with Rotary Slovenia. At the opening of EXPO last October, we presented the most sustainable bottle in the world in the same pavilion. At the end of Slovenia’s participation in the EXPO, we and our partners proudly present “GlassyClassy.eco” and raise public awareness of maintaining the availability of drinking water and the use of glass as a sustainable material. The bottle from the “GlassyClassy.eco” project, which was donated by Hrastnik1860, is an exceptional indicator that Slovenia can be a model of integration, sustainable business and raise awareness of the importance of water protection. I truly believe that together we can promote healthy habits, care for a clean environment and preserve the planet for future generations. “
