Green Glass Recycling Inititative

A few years ago, Ziad Abi Chaker launched GGRIL - The Green Glass Recycling Initiative Lebanon - that aims to solve two issues:

  1. Recycling green and clear glass that was getting thrown in the normal trash. That's a problem because they have a different recycling process than brown glass. 

  2. Saving the jobs of the last standing glassblowers in Beirut and preserving this Phoenician tradition from extinction.

Found in the "Breakfast" box: Two coffee cups made by Lebanese glassblowers
