Notify me when this product is available:

This hand-blown juice glass was made by skilled glass workers in Guatemala. Seventeen artisans reopened a glass factory in 1976 and found a way to recycle discarded glass, which diverted waste from the landfill and less energy was used than required to produce new glass. 

  • 2.5" D x 3.5" H, 6 oz. 
  • Made from recycled materials
  • Dishwasher safe
  • Made in Guatemala

Who made this product? The cooperative, COPAVIC, formed in 1976 when seventeen artisans came together and reopened a former glass factory 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. Not only does COPAVIC protect and renew their environment with recycled glass, they revitalized their community with living wages, insurance, and skills that continue to serve artisans beyond COPAVIC’s kiln-lined walls.

Freckled Small White Mug Mugs TerraKlay

Magic Of Clay

TerraKlay is bringing a wide range of functional designs in stoneware pottery created by craftsmen and craftswomen from south India's village community.

These products were born from the idea to create a platform where the villagers could live and work in their village and learn a new skill instead needing to migrate to bigger cities. This led to the creation of a range of "eco-friendly products" wheel-thrown by village craftsmen. All stoneware cups are fair trade and show the beauty of their handmade artistry.
