More than 10 million metric tons of glass is disposed of annually; however, only one-third is recycled.
Our vision is to build a circular economy platform for glass bottles that is replicable in every town and city. Through urban harvesting, we collect used glass that is at the end of the product cycle.
We want to create fully functional, independent, micro-factories that upcycle this local glass waste into products for commercial and noncommercial consumer usage.
By doing this, we maintain a circular economy where our products are both affordable and sustainable.
OUR CORE VALUES
Our. Whole. Identity. Apart from upcycling glass waste, we regularly evaluate our business practices to ensure our carbon footprint and waste levels are negligible.
We collect glass waste from local Vancouver-based restaurants and send it to fully independent micro factories to be upcycled, then re-sold to Canadian buyers like you!
Be it our products, website or social media, we aim to create functional pieces that look and feel good. These nifty designs are a result of dialogue and brainstorming across our team and all of your feedback!
To reiterate - we adore feedback. We are transparent about our business practices with our customers and stakeholders. In return, we ask that you tell us what you like and don't like! Everyone has a say, including you.
Sustainable & responsible innovation
Our mission is to create useful and innovative glass-related products whilst being sustainable and giving back to the community.
We aim to provide a second life to every waste product.
