Shawn Everette is on a distinguished road
The last shortage caused a lot more shops to reconsider spuce, or just be in the bind that it was batch or nothing. Bomma was unheard of, cristalica had been hit or miss, and oceanside really stumbled the transition. I was able to mostly coast it out because we buy our year supply ahead of time, helps keeping your feelers out to know what's happening supply side.

My old shop that had probably been on cullet for 10 years switched. I think it helped that spruce had started doing the small bags, expensive, but that did seem to keep down the dust significantly. I think overall it was also a good move for them because they ended up switching glasses every 2-3 years. A key factor in that was having to order every 6 months or sooner and take whatever was on hand.
