These recycled champagneflutes from Ngwenya are the perfect, elegant pieces to have in your cupboard, whether it be for a celebratory occasion or just because it’s time to put your feet up! Thesehigh-quality, sleek glasseshave been mouth-blown from 100% recycled glass – mainly from glass drinks bottles – making them the most sustainable drinking vesselsin your cabinet!
The highly-skilled artisan who crafted these 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! How’s that for a talking point? 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 also 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 back this sentiment all the way!
