Work Green - Give Back
Having traveled to over 50 countries, I've come across many re-purposing innovations from all over the world. Simple items that are converted to serve a different purpose from it's initial intent. From old telephone wire converted into trendy, colorful weaved baskets to cutting off the tops of an ordinary plastic bottle and using it as a spout! I have always wanted to work with a material that I could create different things with and with a passion for wanting to run my own business, I one day discovered how something as simple as a glass bottle could be re-purposed into many new useful items that both serve a new purpose and still have great appeal. So I decided to teach myself about glass and jumped right in!
The idea behind Recast Glass is that my items are made up from materials which are either; all-natural, organic, non-toxic, recycled, recyclable and produced in a manner in which has a low environmental impact, so as not to defeat the purpose of reducing waste. Unlike other shops that don't take this into account and defeat the purpose of upcycling. I was initially going to use a kiln to re-shape some of my items, but because of the high energy usage, I decided to stick with just cutting. I keep my products and the packaging simple, useful and appealing. Many items can also be used for a variety of other purposes.
Thanks in part to my friends, family and community for donating their used bottles to my cause, I help pay it forward by donating 10% of the revenues from your purchase to the Keep America Beautiful organization. A non-profit devoted to educating the public on the power of recycling and helping to beautify our neighborhoods nation-wide. So consider your purchase directly supporting a great cause!!
Travel junkie, turned glass worker. I'm a one man show: creating, developing and promoting all of my work. Finally discovering the entrepreneurial side of me. I believe in the power of recycling and giving back!! Thanks for supporting!
I take discarded wine, liquor and beer bottles from the community that would otherwise be discarded into a landfill and I repurpose them into new and unique products for everyday use and unique gift ideas! Each piece is carefully cut, sanded, polished and cleaned using eco-friendly methods and products, including packaging for shipping in 100% recycled material.
Special THANK YOU to all my friends and family for taking the time to enjoy each bottle (having made beautiful memories along the way) so I can find their bottles a new home after repurposing them into new products for others to enjoy :)
Taking into consideration the energy used to make my items and in looking for ways to save energy so as to not defeat the purpose of helping the environment, I am proud to say that about 95% of all my products are all natural, non-toxic, bio-degradable and made from recycled or re-purposed products as well as the tools I use to make them. I strive to produce a product that produces little waste in the process. From removing the labels, to my 5 step cutting and polishing process. I ensure that there is as little waste as possible.
Thank you for your support. Your purchase helps support local communities.
