Meet the Maker

Good Glass is a social enterprise which empowers Ugandans by providing training and fair wage jobs in order to enable them to support themselves and their families.  By paying employees fair wages, they are able to afford school fees for their many children, pay doctors' bills when needed and provide three meals a day for their families in a country where most only eat one. In addition, Good Glass works with local artisans, creating more jobs, to add wood and iron elements to their products creating beautiful mix media pieces.

Many glass items such as wine and spirit bottles are not recyclable in Uganda. The result is excess garbage in already overflowing landfills. At Good Glass, they rescue a portion of this 'garbage' and turn it into unique and beautiful household items. Good Glass products are created using a truly green method that releases far less carbon emissions than traditional melting methods used in the glass recycling industry. They simply cut, sand and polish the bottles, using the existing shapes to re-purpose the bottles into household items and decorations, putting Good Glass at the forefront of eco-friendly glass recycling.
