This set ofrecycled beer glassesfrom Ngwenyaare a great gift for anyone who appreciates the finer things in life, like an ice cool drink from a sustainable vessel! 100% of glass used to make thesebeer glasses has been recycled – mainly from glass drinks bottles. The highly-skilled artisan who crafted these pint glasses has been trained to the highest level in the age-old art of glassblowing – meaning that every glass is as unique as its maker!
People from all over Swaziland and Eswatini collect bottles and are paid per kilo for clean glass taken to the factory to be recycled. Ngwenya is said to be the cleanest area around, because any bottle that catches the children’s attention, tends to find its way into the factory!
Ngwenya Glass is also concerned with conservation and organises environmental clean-up days along the main roads in their area. They do this by encouraging the schools in their area to do these clean-ups in exchange for donations of things like building materials or football kits. They believe that by educating our children about environmental issues, we will have a chance of saving our planet – we couldn’t agree more!
