Innovative Glass Recycling by Enoch Kiwanuka

Eight years ago I started recycling glass bottles. I made a bedside lamp for someone's birthday gift. Soon I had requests for other lamps; I have made 17 of them. 

My love for nature was one of the forces that kept me going. Glass is a non-bio-degradable material. This means anywhere it is dumped it remains for years (some environmentalists claim up to one million years) and damages the echo system. In my country (Uganda) we don’t recycle that much because of lack of awareness, capital and the much needed skills. Waste is dumped in water sources, alongside streets and in forests. 

Because of this I started collecting bottles from which I made tumblers, stationery, bulb and candle holders to be re-used in homes. I have collected over 2000 bottles and have recycled over 500. I am hoping to expand and make sure that no bottle or piece of glass goes to waste. I know, even at this stage, I have had a significant effect on our magnificent environment. 

To all environmentalists out there, keep up the work because with everyday that goes by there is more reasons to protect our environment. 

Buy one of my recycled glasses and you too will actively contribute to the protection of our resources which have increasingly become shared all around the world.

I ship to anywhere in the world. Please contact me for a quote.



Kind regards

Enoch's glasses are beautifully crafted and a joy to drink out of. They travelled safely home from Uganda to Australia where they have been much admired.

Thank you again Enoch . We love them!​
