Sustainable living is not just a trend- it’s a way of life that we can all try to draw from. As the effects of climate change and environmental protection issues take center stage in the world’s media, here at Evergreen we’ve been working on expanding our sustainable home decor options. This means producing goods that align with our company ideals of working towards a cleaner future and making a social impact. Enter Bambeco Glassware – our collection of recycled home goods and gifts that are not only eco-friendly, but also absolutely beautiful.
Our Bambeco glassware is hand-crafted in the heart of Mexico, in a family-owned and operated factory. All pieces are produced using the method of traditional glass-blowing, an art dating back to the first century BC. Passed down through generations, craftsmen have almost all been practicing their entire lives. It’s a highly skilled method and requires extensive practice and knowledge to master. When working with recycled glass, the challenge increases, as the pieces of glass may not all have the same melting points. The use of recycled glass, along with the hand crafted nature of the practice, means each piece is completely unique, and the result? Beautiful, high-quality specialities.
The artisans use up-cycled bottles and broken pieces of glass to produce the Bambeco collection. Every item keeps 3 glass soda bottle bottles out of landfills! Being mindful of sustainable living and the environmental impact of our production is a commitment Evergreen Enterprises takes seriously, and we strive to bring you pieces that align with our principles. Because of the variation in glass used, each finished piece is unique and small color variations can be found. These make fantastic, one-of-a-kind keepsakes.
While we strive to be more environmentally-aware, we also want our homes to look beautiful. These pieces are crafted to stand out, whether they’re on your tabletop, your side table, or in your hand (full of your favorite cocktail!). Whether it’s a family dinner or you’re hosting Thanksgiving, the Bambeco glassware will be a talking point and elevate the feel of your decor.
These pieces of glassware are not only beautiful and sustainable, they’re also highly functional.
The majority of the glassware is dishwasher-safe (check individual product descriptions) which makes them a no-fuss kitchenware item. Many of the pieces are multi-functional, too. For example, the Maya Clear Recycled Glass Wine Decanter or the Monterey Blue Recycled Glass Pitcher can be used for beverages or alternatively, as vases for a fresh bunch of your favorite flowers. Because of the versatility, function, and variety of designs, these make for beautiful gifts during the holiday season.
