Alexandria, Virginia, April 10, 2013 – The Glass Packaging Institute (GPI), the trade association representing the North American glass container industry, today unveiled its new website, www.GPI.org.

We want to ensure our content stays timely, relevant and accurate. Our new website is our opportunity to achieve this goal,” said GPI President Lynn Bragg. “This site will be a vehicle for our members to engage their employees and customers, and a resource for consumers, state and federal legislators, media and others to gain important information on the health and environmental benefits of choosing glass.”
