The GREEN GLASS RECYCLING INITIATIVE – LEBANON (GGRIL) addresses the lack of recycling of green & amber glass packaging by reviving the glass blowing artisanship which was invented in this land by the Phoenicians· All proceeds from the sales of these glass items will go back into the stream to provide more work for the glass blowing artisans and hence divert more colored glass from the waste stream and provide higher recycling & recuperation rates. All components of the package (Glass, Box and Label) were made from Lebanese recycled glass and paper.
