Our local projects pick up thousands of glasses and bottles from the streets every year - this is to prevent them from becoming a weapon, getting broken and ending up in someone's foot and to help clean up our town and city centres.
We support calls to replace glass with polycarbonate as it would go a long way in reducing injuries within the night-time economy.
There are two main campaigns which Street Angels - CNI Network supports:
Pop-campaign aims to get glass banned from late nights bars and clubs and replaced with recyclable Polycarbonate glasses and PET bottles.
Founded in 2005 by Marjorie & Robert Golding after their son @Blake_Golding was attacked with a glass bottle on Christmas Eve 2004. GLASS SHATTERS LIFE MATTERS

"In the early hours of 4th April 2012, my husband, Phil, was the victim of an attack at a corporate event in London. He was stabbed in the left side of the neck with a bottle severing the 2 main arteries. He lost 5 pints of blood. Despite the Royal London Hospital team's best efforts, the blood loss caused severe brain damage which, over 4 days, lead to his brain dying completely and his ventilator being turned off in the early hours of 8th April. His death is devastating. I can not - and will not - let this happen to another family. Please help me."
