from the ashes

A glass for next generations

Glass is often seen as sustainable because it can seemingly endlessly recycled. But in addition to unmanageable energy consumption, problematic ingredients are required. Limestone, which has only a limited availability and is mined in gigantic mines with known problems. And soda, the availability of which is changing dramatically due to climate change. FROM THE ASHES is made with endless resources in the form of waste: With wood ash from pizza bakers and clamshells from restaurants, sand is processed into a glass that is energy-saving and really recyclable.
