Project description

Typically resorts in the Maldives will crush their bottles and sell the crushed glass to a recycling company, or simply dump the waste glass into the ocean. Soneva Fushi 's solution to this is to take on this entire process themselves. They begin by crushing the glass and melting it in their state-of-the-art glass furnace. Then using a variety of techniques, such as blowing, casting, and slumping they offer guests the rare experience of learning how to blow glass and create their own masterpiece, extraordinary items that are of a much higher value than the glass was in its original form as a bottle.

This project contributes to the following Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda
