Friends of Glass is working with Lunar Mission One to send the recipe of the precious material to the moon on the Astrobotic Lander in a bid to preserve it for generations to come.

The benefits of glass packaging for health, taste, and quality are endless and timeless. Glass as a packaging material has been used since 1,200 B.C. and has taken man through the ages. Now, the recipe for glass will join man on to the next frontier, space.

Lunar Mission One has recently launched a ‘Footsteps on the Moon’ campaign which aims to put a digital archive containing millions of human footprints on the moon in 2017.

‘Footsteps on the Moon’ is an opportunity for everyone in the world to upload a picture of their own footprints, and store it on the moon.

“By sending glass to the moon, we are preserving a fundamental piece of human history that has been in use for millennia,” added Michael Delle Selve, Senior Communications Manager for FEVE.

“Glass is definitely the packaging of today and the future. It is the safest packaging material for health, best preserves the quality of food and drink and is 100% indefinitely recyclable, why wouldn’t glass be one of mankind’s greatest footprints?”
