Why recycled glass?
In Ghana, the country in which I was born, having your rubbish collected is unbelievably expensive. Garbage collection cost ~20% of an individual's average monthly income!!! As a result, rubbish is either dumped or burned.
We are creating change one bottle at a time. We recycle discarded glass bottles into upcycled jewellery.
We use traditional Ghanaian techniques dating back to the 17th century to handcraft each individual bead. We grind, bake, and polish to transform the waste we collect into upcycled jewels.
We're proud to be giving new life to waste. Proud to be economically empowering our artisans. And proud to be sharing our Ghanaian culture with the world.
