This is our story
The name "Soda Lemon" was inspired from the type of glass we work with, known as "soda-lime glass". Soda-lime glass is commonly used for glass containers to store food and drinks.

Soda Lemon SG was born from our founders' belief that while profit is necessary for a business, its main foundations should be rooted on the pillars of sustainability. Our business model strives to balance between our economy, society and the environment we live in.

We aim to transform the way our society views glass both as a resource and as a material. Together with you, we believe that we can do our part to reduce our society's impact on nature -- one quality product at a time.
Glass is made from sand, an invaluable yet finite resource harvested from nature. To make new glass, we would have to continue harvesting from the increasingly fragile landscapes on Earth.

As one of the most consumed natural resource, we may also face a sand crisis in the near future (Torres et al., 2017). But being so heavy and challenging to process, glass is less of a priority in any recycling programme.

By choosing to upcycle and recycle glass, we help to circulate existing glass within our economy and society. This reduces damage to nature amidst our hunger for ever more resources.

our philosophy
'Do what we can, within our limits.'
While we as a society strive towards the ideal of 'zero impact', we also recognize that it is impossible to have zero impact. Every human activity will inevitably have some negative consequence on society and nature.

Recognizing our limits, however, does not mean that we stop trying to achieve something close to the ideal. It is our belief that everyone (including you and us) has a part to play in transitioning the world's economy to a truly sustainable one.
