A few years ago, Ziad Abi Chaker launched GGRIL - The Green Glass Recycling Initiative Lebanon - that aims to solve two issues:
- Recycling green and clear glass that was getting thrown in the normal trash in Lebanon. That's a problem because they have a different recycling process than brown glass.
- Saving the jobs of the last standing glassblowers in Beirut and Lebanon and preserving this Phoenician tradition from extinction.
