Green Glass is a Ugandan social enterprise that focuses on recycling glass bottles from landfills and those in the process of being dumped to make high quality household items like drinking glasses, chandeliers, accessories containers, lamps, candle holders and a host of other useful items.


Green Glass is here to turn the otherwise throw- away pieces of trash into useful items. We partner with small youth focused Non- Governmental Organizations (NGOs) by training some of their beneficiaries in glass recycling skills and in addition set up recycling production units to provide these youth with meaningful employment


There are many bottles that are thrown away or dumped in landfills across Uganda and these pose a danger to the environment since they cannot decompose and can therefore remain in the soils for thousands of years to come.



In a country where glass recycling of most used glass bottles is unheard of yet the number of those dumped increases by the day, a fact backed up by statistics from the World Health Organization report that ranks Uganda as the second highest alcohol consuming country in the world.


This venture is therefore a timely intervention to clear up the landfills and curb the disastrous effects of glass bottles to the environment but also provide opportunities to the youth in Uganda whose unemployment rate stands at over 70%.
