This hand-blown juice glass was made by skilled glass workers in Guatemala. By using recycled glass to make this product, waste was diverted from the landfill and less energy was used than required to produce new glass.

Made from recycled materials
Who made this product? In 1976 COPAVIC was founded by a group of artisans who wanted to bring new life to old glass and the discarded factory in the in Cantel, Guatemala.
Why is it ethical? These artisans crush and then melt down broken discarded glass and hand blow the molten fragments into fresh recycled pieces. COPAVIC works to protect and renew their environment, while also rebuilding stability in their community by providing living wages, insurance, and skills that continue to serve members beyond their refurbished factory.
