SmoothEdge is thrilled to announce that we have teamed up with Whitby Distillery to upcycle their iconic waste bottles into beautiful eco-friendly glassware.
About the Eco-Freindly Upcycled Whitby Glasses.
These upcycled glasses are created with sustainability in mind. It is estimated that up to 50% of the U.K's glass bottles end up in landfills each year. As glass does not decompose, it will remain in landfills taking up unnecessary space. Producing these glasses also uses up to 150x less carbon than factory-made glassware, while helping to reduce the demand for virgin materials and the amount of waste heading to landfills.
Not only are these glasses stunning, they create a conversation and raises awareness around the sustainability topic. With these glasses, you can enjoy beautiful glassware while also doing your part to for the environment.
Why is Upcycling Important?
Upcycling helps reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfills. By repurposing materials into new products, we can minimise the environmental impact of waste, reduce the need for new production of materials, and conserve resources such as water and energy.
Upcycling also encourages creativity and innovation in design and manufacturing. It provides opportunities for artists, designers, and entrepreneurs to come up with innovative ways to repurpose materials and create unique and sustainable products, such as the beautiful Whitby bottle. This fosters a culture of sustainability, promotes creative problem-solving, and encourages new ways of thinking about waste and materials.
Care Guide For The Upcycled Whitby Glasses
As the glasses are handmade and upcycled from a waste Whitby bottles, there maybe a few imperfections such as scratches and slight variation in size. This makes each glass unique and interesting while enhancing the story behind the glasses.
