These water carafes are upcycled from empty wine bottles; a waste product from Zanzibar’s tourism industry. The wine bottles are collected from hotels and restaurants, cleaned and cut in different sizes. The bottle vases are available in green and transparent. They do not only look good, they are also eco-friendly and super social.
The upcycled water carafes are ethically made and sourced in small village on Zanzibar, Tanzania.
The producer of these glasses is located on Zanzibar, Tanzania and is a certified fair trade organisation according to WFTO. They support marginalized youth of Zanzibar and teaching them the craft of upcycling wine bottles as well as other life skills and English. This project contributes to the waste management of Zanzibar’s tourism industry.
