Fabulous recycling

I just spotted this in the latest issue of 'Donna Hay' magazine. They are glasses and jugs made from recycled glassware by dutch designers Boontje and Woofenden. Aren't they divine!
Created from recycled bottles, the glasses and jug are made in Guatemala by a local artisan group who have developed skills in cutting and polishing glassware to create beautiful works of art.

The Guatemalan scheme is part of a Design with Conscience campaign that aims to use design to foster humanitarian and environmental causes around the world.

The glassware comes frosted, in various shades of green or in white, depending on the type of bottles used.
