Whether your take yours with your favourite mixer or on the rocks, make sure your whiskey is sipped from a recycled, mouth-blown tumbler. Fitting comfortably in the hand, this quirky glass set is a perfect gift for a lover of the wee dram.
100% of glass used to make these whisky tumblers has been recycled – mainly from glass drinks bottles. Each and every piece is as unique as its maker, as it’s totally handmade and mouth-blown – a skill which takes years of training. People from all over Swaziland and Eswatini collect bottles and are paid per kilo for clean glass. Ngwenya is said to be the cleanest area around, because any bottle that catches the children’s attention finds 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 – a sentiment we here at Traidcraft fully support!
