Our Mission

Founded in 1919 as the Glass Container Association of America, GPI is the
trade association representing the North American glass container industry.

On behalf of glass container manufacturers, GPI promotes glass as the optimal
packaging choice, advances environmental and recycling policies,
advocates industry standards, and educates packaging professionals.

Help ensure the future of glass! Together we can position the glass industry for growth,
raise awareness of its benefits, influence lawmakers, and harness consumer interests.
