We are running out of materials.
The required ingredients of glass are either naturally limited or their availability will decrease due to climate change. But luckily they exist in endless quantities in other areas and have no value there: Ashes and Seashells.
This project is a traditional twist by redefining old glass recipes with new circular supply chains. It invites local restaurants and households to take part of the creation by delivering two out of three main materials that are currently waste. Sand as the third component is circular in glass because it can turn to sand again.
